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.

When fieldwork meets a global pandemic

“Eventually food transport was going to be stopped, so the field team were airlifted back to Cayenne.”

That was how lockdown started for members of Lauren O’Connell’s lab. Lauren is Assistant Professor of Biology at Stanford University, USA, and her lab studies how genetic and environmental factors contribute to biological diversity and adaptation.

In the field

When lockdown hit, members of her team were studying poison frogs at a field station in French Guiana, South America. The remote station can only be accessed by boat or helicopter. Such an isolated base would have been safer as the pandemic spread, but when news came in that food supplies were going to be cut off, the team had to act.
