Associate membership

Associate membership is for those who have an active and genuine interest in the life sciences as part of their career.

This community is a broad spectrum of non-research orientated individuals, which include:

  • Biology Teachers
  • Lab technicians / assistants
  • Physiotherapists / Occupational therapists
  • Healthcare Professionals (GP’s / Nurses)
  • Non-research clinicians
  • Anatomists
  • Nutritionists
  • Fitness instructors
  • Related cognate Company/Society staff
  • Publishers

Please note that this list is not exhaustive. If you are unsure, please telephone us to discuss your particular circumstances.

Associate membership costs £30. See our payment options for further information. Members (all categories) on a career break or maternity leave are eligible for a one year waiver of the subscription fee from the date you notify us of these circumstances.  If this applies to you please write to us at You retain all your benefits of membership during this period. The Society may ask for evidence of your circumstances (i.e. MATB1).
