Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector (BMCS)

RSC Interest Groups are member-driven groups which exist to benefit Royal Society of Chemistry members, and the wider chemical science community, in line with the RSC’s strategy and charter.


BMCS aims to further the interests of all members of the Royal Society of Chemistry, both industrial and academic, involved in the pursuit and understanding of biologically active molecules.

The predominant areas include:

  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Agrochemicals
  • Flavours
  • Fragrances


  • Public promotion of the crucial role played by chemistry in the modern industrial environment.
  • Organisation of scientific meetings and symposia.
  • Support for educational activities in the UK.
  • Advising the Royal Society of Chemistry on policies that directly affect the BMCS.


We also have an online community, which is based on the MyRSC platform, for anyone who shares our interests.

Get Involved

We are always looking for new committee members who are keen to get involved and to help organise our activities. If you would like to find out more please contact us.
