The Company of Biologists uses the surplus it generates for the benefit of biology and the biological community. We support through grant funding:

  • Meetings, Workshops and conferences – both large and small – in the fields covered by our journals around the world.
  • Scientific societies. Three of the societies we fund use part of our funding to provide travel grants to support early career scientists who wish to attend conferences.
  • Travelling Fellowships to graduate students and post-doctoral researchers wishing to make collaborative visits to other laboratories.

A tribute to Dr Richard Skaer

Dr Richard Skaer

Dr Richard Skaer dedicated much of his career to the success of The Company of Biologists. It is with great sadness that we learned of his passing on 5 June 2021.

It is because of Richard’s hard work and dedication that the Company proudly stands as an independent not-for-profit publisher today.

Read our full tribute to Dr Richard Skaer.


How The Company of Biologists supports early-career researchers

Early-career researchers (ECRs) are our future leaders in biology and it is vital that we support them in the first stages of their academic careers. Navigating the intricacies and demand of early academic life is no mean feat, with triumphs and tribulations scattered throughout.

ECRs are often in unfamiliar territory as they work hard to publish papers, grow their connections and engage in informal scientific activities to continuously promote themselves and their work with their peers.

Find out more about the practical support we offer ECRs to meet the unique needs and challenges they face.
