We are the leading professional body for the biological sciences in the United Kingdom. We represent approximately 16,000 biologists from all areas of the life sciences, as well as over 95 organisations which make up the diverse landscape of biology in the UK and overseas.

Whichever area of the biosciences/life sciences you work in, membership will help you:

  • Stay up to date with what is happening across the life sciences
  • Gain additional recognition for your skills and experience
  • Develop your professional network
  • Demonstrate your support for the future of biology

We take a broad view of biology and encompass those working in all areas of the science of life, from molecules, through whole organisms, to ecosystems; we therefore use the terms biologist, life scientist, bioscientist and biological scientist interchangeably.
