Advertising in BioNews

BioNews is read by around 18,000 people every week. Our readership is predominantly in the UK, but we have subscribers in 44 countries. That is a lot of people with an interest in assisted conception, genetics, embryo/stem cell research and related areas.

Advertisements (up to 300 words in length) start from as little as £75, making BioNews a very cost effective way to reach your target audience.

The Progress Educational Trust can personally vouch for the service, as the charity has itself successfully engaged members of staff via BioNews. Why not save money by recruiting through BioNews, and help keep BioNews FREE at the same time?
