Society for Experimental Biology

Welcome to the Society for Experimental Biology!

Experimental Biology is the study of the form and function of animals and plants at all levels of organisation from the molecular and cellular to the whole organism. The ethos of Experimental Biology is one of interdisciplinary studies usually conducted within the context of the environment and evolution of the organism.

The Society for Experimental Biology believes that the broad nature and lack of “ology” boundaries implicit in Experimental Biology give it a pivotal role in the development of Life Sciences which are of considerable benefit to its members and to society. In particular, Experimental Biology contributes to knowledge that can be applied to the development of agriculture and medicine and to understanding the impacts of human activity on living organisms and ecosystems.
