An opportunity for RSB student and AMRSB members to buy reduced rate tickets to our Anniversary Gala Dinner with special guest of honour Sir David Attenborough FRS Hon FRSB

The pinnacle event of the Royal Society of Biology's (RSB) 10th year is our celebratory Anniversary Gala Dinner at the Science Museum in London. This very special drinks and canap√© reception and seated dinner marks 10 years since the launch of the RSB by our Honorary Fellows Sir David Attenborough FRS and Sir Paul Nurse FRS in March 2010.

We will be recognising Sir David's passionate support of the bioscience community and of the RSB as the single unified voice for biology, by presenting him with our first Lifetime Achievement Award. The event will include short addresses from RSB President Professor Dame Julia Goodfellow FRSB, Sir Paul Nurse FRS Hon FRSB and Sir David Attenborough FRS Hon FRSB.

Members and their guests are invited to buy tickets. Proceeds from this event will help the RSB's ongoing work supporting the global biosciences community. Guests are welcome to make an additional donation when booking online.
