About us

Founded in 1911, the Biochemical Society exists to advance molecular bioscience, promoting its importance as an academic discipline, from grassroots level to government policy, and highlighting its role in positively effecting societal challenges.

With an extensive programme of scientific meetings, training events and courses, educational resources and activities, policy and public engagement, the Society provides support for researchers and scientists, teachers, and members of the public.  The Biochemical Society is also the UK’s largest single-discipline learned society.

Portland Press, the Society's publishing arm, represents one half of the joint mission to disseminate and advance science, to share knowledge and expertise, critically discuss ideas, and to provide forums for collaboration. Publishing the best possible research and reviews help achieve this. 

Returning all profits to the Biochemical Society, Portland Press helps to facilitate Society activities; investing back into the life science community to better support current and future generations of scientists.
