Welcome to Protistology-UK!
Our Learned Society (formerly the British Society for Protist Biology) is a membership organisation for scientists and amateurs interested in all areas of protistology; from ecological to medical and from sub-cellular to population studies. The Society primarily exists to support and promote protistan research and teaching in the UK but a key aim is to encourage the development of young scientists. We host one scientific meeting a year and provide bursaries for student attendance together with prizes for student presentations.

Protistology-UK is an affiliated society of the International Society of Protistologists (ISOP). As such, P-UK members are entitled to reduced ISOP membership.
The Society has a limited number of bursaries for our annual Spring Meetings. The bursary covers a registration fee waiver for the Meeting, but does not cover any travel or accommodation costs.
Bursaries are restricted to members and are available, on a first-come-first-served basis, for students who are presenting either a talk or a poster at the Spring Meeting. Applications for bursaries will be considered only with a completed registration form for the Spring Meeting. Applicants must state in their registration that they wish to be considered for a bursary. Unsuccessful applicants will be told immediately that all bursaries have been allocated for that meeting.
