Each monthly episode features:

  • An in-depth interview with our special biomedical scientist guest, or someone closely linked to the profession. The conversation ranges from current affairs to the intricacies of diagnostic laboratory work, research & innovation, teaching, writing, to involvement with the IBMS, media work; as well as motivations & passions for the profession.
  • LabLife - Mini-interviews with our members who have the most extraordinary of pastimes; going beyond the science to look at the profession from a different perspective.
  • IBMS News - A quick update of all the latest news from the IBMS.

With self-directed learning becoming increasingly important for staying up-to-date with the latest research and news, and developing knowledge for the wide range of IBMS exams, the podcast is designed to be a valuable learning and CPD resource for members.
