George Fromow

Forty years earlier in 1977, his father had been presented with an MBE for charitable acts to the poor.

George started work in 1965 at the Public Health Laboratories in Gibraltar as an Assistant.

After spending time at St Thomas’ Hospital in London and North London Blood Transfusion Centre, he moved back to Gibraltar.

In 1990, the IBMS Gibraltar branch was founded and George was elected its first Chairman.

In 2007 Gibraltar held the first International Conference in Biomedical Science and the then IBMS President Gordon Sutehall presented George with the highest honour and he was made an Honorary Fellow (Member in Retirement).
