The COVID-19 pandemic has put science and scientists centre stage in a way rarely seen. As well as being an important forum for developing the professional skills and knowledge of biomedical scientists, the IBMS Congress 2022 will be a celebration of science in all its variety, influence, potential and impact on society. 

In addition, Rev Dr Sinclair will address the UK NEQAS (National External Quality Assessment Service) conference in Liverpool in October 2022, with a talk looking at Escalating external quality assessment (EQA) Performance Concerns.
