IBMS Congress Spotlight: Meet our speakers


We are just under a week away from the much-anticipated IBMS Congress, where Sonic Healthcare UK will be exhibiting at The ICC in Birmingham for a second time!

As Congress draws closer, we want to shine a spotlight on a few of the speakers from our organisation and the talks they will be giving on various themes. Our very own colleagues, who are all specialists in their subject areas, will be speaking to fascinating topics, including education, blood transfusion, cytology and biochemistry.
