Welcome to SCI

SCI is a unique multi-science and multidisciplinary forum where science meets business.

SCI Themes

SCI promotes Innovation and Education via forums and networks which support the delivery of our charitable aim to advance the commercial application of chemistry related sciences into business.

SCI was established by Royal Charter in 1881, by a prominent group of forward thinking Scientists, Inventors and Business people; with founder members going on to set up major businesses producing many of the daily products we recognise today.

Join SCI today to share and exchange information, ideas, innovations and research. Members have access to a growing network of member specialists from sectors as diverse as food and agrisciences, environment, energy, materials and health and well-being.

Meet our members:

Marta Barniol-XicotaMarta Barniol-Xicota, who holds a degree in Pharmacy from the Universidad de Barcelona and is currently in the last year of her PhD studies, was recently awarded a Messel Travel Bursary to support her attendance at the 5th SCI/RSC Symposium on Ion Channels as Therapeutic Targets.
‘Nearing the end of my PhD, this symposium was of the utmost help as this year I will be presenting my thesis entitled Small molecules as ion channels modifiers. I will have to decide what my next step will be and this experience assured me that I will keep on the research pathway. Furthermore, I see my future in Europe, and having been able to network with scientists who I share research interests with and meet international leaders in the field, has given me some ideas for taking the right steps to pursue my career in the ion channel field. Moreover, I was able to meet other PhD students coming from different universities and disciplines which, apart from exchanging experiences, tips and advices, led to establishing a new collaboration between our universities to carry out a joint research project! I am grateful to SCI for providing funding to attend this scientific meeting and would be keen on participating again in future events.’
