New President of The British Phycological Society

Congratulations to Gill Malin, M-KEN Director of Marine Biology, who was recently appointed President of the British Phycological Society (BPS). For those of you who read this as psychology you are not alone, google has this problem too! For the uninitiated, phycology is the study of algae. The society has an international membership and is one of the first phycological societies to be set up worldwide, with an established and deserved reputation in the field. M-KEN is planning for a future meeting on algae, so if you are interested in unlocking the potential of algae for your organisation or business please do get in touch. Click here for more info.
