Mission Statement and Introduction
The Society for Experimental Biology aims to promote, and increase the influence of, Experimental Biology within the scientific community and Society by:
- developing the field of, and scientific careers in, experimental biology;
- developing education and public awareness in experimental biology;
- developing collaborative partnerships;
- maintaining transparency, ethical and environmental sensitivity in every sphere of activity;
- ensuring the financial viability of the Society.
In pursuit of its aims the Society for Experimental Biology’s activities include:
- the organisation and sponsorship of experimental biology conferences, both independently and in collaboration with other life science societies;
- the publication and dissemination of a range of scientific literature;
- education, careers and policy work;
- the administration of travel grants for young researchers;
- offering membership to experimental biology researchers in academia and industry working at post-graduate level and above.
The SEB is one of four owner societies working together at Charles Darwin House to strengthen the voice of Biology and create a national hub for our subject. Our belief is that Biology is made stronger through collaboration that brings together the diverse skills, opinions and expertise of individual member Societies. This is the principle that underpins Charles Darwin House.
