Our annual celebration of the diversity of roles within biology is back! We invite all biologists, from young enthusiasts to professors, to join #IAmABiologist this Biology Week, from 16th - 20th October 2023. Share a photo or video of you in action and tag @royalsocbio using #IAmABiologist on Instagram and Twitter.

We launched #IAmABiologist in Biology Week 2017, to fill social media full of photos of biologists in action, to highlight the breadth of roles you can do working in bioscience. From anthropologists to zoologists, each year we aim to fill the internet with photos of bioscientists changing the world.

Below are some examples from Biology Week 2022 for inspiration. Thousands of biologists from research groups, study groups, labs, fields and everywhere in between shared photos and tweeted using the hashtag #IAmABiologist.
