British Biophysical Society’s position post-BREXIT

The British Biophysical Society wishes to reassure its members that our close association with the the European biophysics communities, will not change post-BREXIT. The BBS also endorses the statements issued by other learned Societies, such as the joint statement from the Royal Society and Academy of Medical Sciences, and the Biochemical Society, especially with respect to the right of EU nationals already in the UK, to stay and work in the UK.

New Horizons for British Biophysics
