On Friday 11th October, we invite all biologists to share photos of them in action, as part of our annual Biology Week #iamabiologist campaign


From anthropologists to zoologists, we want to fill twitter full of photos of bioscientists changing the world. Post your photo of you in action as a biologist, tag @RoyalSocBio and use the hashtag #iamabiologist and we'll be sharing your photos all day, to showcase the diversity and breadth of the biosciences.


Get in touch with Adama Saccoh, Biology Week intern, at if you would like to feature in our Biology Week 2019 campaign.

Over 500 biologists took part in our first ever Biology Week social media campaign

We launched #iamabiologist in Biology Week 2017, to fill twitter full of photos of biologists in action, to highlight the breadth of roles you can do working in bioscience.

Research groups, study groups, and lots of biologists in labs, fields and everywhere in between shared photos and tweeted using the hashtag #iamabiologist.

In total, we saw 540 posts from biologists across the world. The hashtag was used 2089 times throughout the campaign, and had a reach of almost 10 million people.
