Following specific coverage of the 2022 Biomedical Science Congress in previous issues of Pathology in Practice, this month the magazine looks at plenary aspects and some of those delivering the education, training and management programmes.
Over the past century, the Institute has held regular conferences, and from early modest beginnings these have grown via the Triennial conferences to the Congress event that is eagerly anticipated next March. Had Congress gone ahead this year as originally planned, and not disrupted by the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, then on the day of compiling this update – Wednesday 29 September – delegates would have been thronging the halls and lecture theatres of the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Birmingham. Instead, we are a little under six months away from the rescheduled event, and Congress preparations are now well underway.
The latest information and the most current programmes can be found on the Congress website (congress.ibms.org). This will grow over the coming months as new talks and features are added. In November, for example, the IBMS will be launching the Hall 4 free seminar programme.
Congress requires people to come together in one place for a specific purpose – delegates attend to link learning to their roles in the laboratory; speakers attend to present their work or give an account of their experience in particular biomedical fields. Last month Pathology in Practice focused on a selection of the speakers on the scientific programme; this month it turns the spotlight on the plenary programmes, on education, training and management, and on the poster display presented by members of the IBMS History Committee.
