FBR is dedicated to the promotion of fungal biology, as it is pursued at Universities and Research Institutions. Members may have research interests spanning the breadth of fungal biology, including: cell biology, biochemistry and physiology; genomics, genetics and molecular biology; pathogenesis and disease control; evolution and systematics; environment and ecology; mutualistic relationships; systems biology; biotechnology.
The FBR committee also makes nominations to BMS Council for the prestigious Berkeley Award, awarded for an outstanding original contribution to mycology.
The Main Scientific Meeting is a flagship event organised by FBR annually, with a major portion of the FBR budget dedicated to its success. The meeting attracts academic fungal biologists and leading speakers from across the world. FBR also organises joint meetings with other societies.
This new platform will visualise mycological research in the United Kingdom. This is featured on the website in the form of a map including relevant information about researchers. Besides highlighting the diversity of research in the United Kingdom, it will also promote collaborations.
It is an excellent opportunity for you and your collaborators to be featured by the British Mycological Society to highlight you research discoveries and innovations within the field on the BMS Map of Science.
Researchers in FBR have the opportunity to:
A number of grants are available from the Society.
The members of the current Committee are on the Society pages
