Remit of CBID


The role of the Chemistry Biology Interface Division is to set, drive and deliver the strategy for chemical biology within the RSC and in doing so to raise the profile of chemical biology.

RSC Council has agreed that the Division should also:

  • Attract the necessary expertise within and outside the RSC
  • Influence external groups, e.g. funding bodies, charities, government, Members of Parliament, the media, other learned societies, and universities
  • Liaise with specialist interest groups in the area of chemical biology
  • Advise the RSC on publications in the chemical biology sphere
  • Advise and influence the teaching of chemistry with a biological emphasis
  • Advise the RSC on new developments, key issues and keynote conferences we should hold in the chemical biology area
