Biomedical Science Day is an awareness day organised by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) to inform the public about practices in biomedical science and to celebrate a profession that is ‘at the heart of healthcare’. Biomedical Scientists are essential members of the modern healthcare team and, in collaboration with doctors and other medical professionals, aid in the diagnosis of disease, evaluate effectiveness of treatments, and research into causes and cures of diseases.
