Biomedical Scientist of the Year 2020
Upon winning this year, IBMS Fellow and consultant Biomedical Scientist Dr Guy Orchard, said:
It is a tremendous honour to receive this award. I was nominated in respect of two innovations I researched in my laboratory and which are now commercially available products worldwide. I feel very strongly when people say that biomedical scientists do not do research, we definitely do and our work has the potential to make a significant contribution to our diagnostic services.
I was therefore delighted when my laboratory-based research and product innovations received this recognition by my peers and my professional body.”
IBMS Licentiate Micsha Costa, also scooped an AHA award, in the ‘Rising Star’ category, for her “dedication and hard work” .
