COVID-19: The IBMS in the media

Since COVID-19 first arrived on these shores, the IBMS has been working hard to communicate the vital work that biomedical scientists are doing to help tackle the pandemic and protect the public.

Whether this is through raising awareness of what the profession contributes, or by debunking myths about how the testing process works, the Institute has organised for numerous members of staff and frontline scientists to appear on television, on the radio and in national and international newspapers.

All this coverage can be accessed though the IBMS website, with links to the relevant media wherever possible.    

Following is a list of media appearance the IBMS secured in the first two weeks of April. To read listen to and watch this content, visit:
