The British Science Association (BSA) has named University of Birmingham Professor Jeremy Pritchard as its Biological Sciences Section President for 2018.
Each year, the Sections nominate an individual who has made a significant contribution to their scientific field for Presidency of the Section. To mark the start of their year-long Presidency, Section Presidents are invited to give an address at the British Science Festival in September.
Jeremy is Professor of Life Sciences Education and Director of Education in the College of Life and Environmental Sciences at the University of Birmingham.
The BSA is a charity, founded in 1831 and incorporated by Royal Charter. Their mission is to transform the diversity and inclusivity of science; to reach under-served audiences, and increase the number of people who are actively engaged and involved in science.
