Founded in 1971, and with over 5,000 members in 135 countries around the world, the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy (BSAC) is a global educator, joining the dots between scientific researchers, medical communities and the wider public, encouraging and enabling them to pass on their knowledge to a global audience.
Our internationally renowned publications are among the foremost international journals in antimicrobial research, while our commitment to scientific excellence is reflected in our varied programme of events, training and free educational resources.
We know that better education can help prevent disease, develop more effective practice and influence international policy. Working together, we can ensure a safer world by developing new drugs, while making sure we use the ones we already have are used responsibly and protected for future generations.
Memorandum and Articles of Association (MAA) is the statutory instrument that governs the operation of the BSAC. The MAA can only be amended with the approval of the Charity Commission.
The Regulations, that can be amended by Council, further define the MAA and establish operational procedures for BSAC business.
