IBMS Congress: Our Scientific Posters


The IBMS Congress is not only an opportunity for organisations and suppliers to exhibit their services and vast technologies, but it is also a chance for individuals to showcase the various scientific topics they have been researching, along with their findings, to spectators and judges. 

From the second to the final day of Congress, many delegates presented their posters, including five staff members of Sonic Healthcare UK. 

On Tuesday 15th March – when the exhibition officially opened to the public – Head of Learning and Development, Wendy Leversuch, presented her poster on an investigation into the use of online training videos in support of laboratory bench training.
