About Us

UK PlantSci is the online home of the UK Plant Sciences Federation (UKPSF). The UKPSF is a Special Interest Group of the Royal Society of Biology aiming to bring together the breadth of the UK Plant Science sector to:

 

• Increase understanding of the significance of plant sciences

• Formulate a coordinated strategy and vision that will be used to inform policy

• Improve the general funding environment

• Create an independent and inclusive forum for debate

• Provide a focus and contact point for UK plant science

• Support efforts to inspire, educate and train the next generation

 

The UKPSF is made up of a wide range of Member Organisations. If your organisation is interested in becoming a member, please contact Jonathan Carruthers.

 

The UKPSF operates with financial support from the Society for Experimental Biology (SEB), the Biochemical Society and the British Society for Plant Pathology (BSPP). The UKPSF was founded with support from the Gatsby Charitable Foundation and SEB.
