Selected Talking Heads: a look at Congress 2023 in microcosm

In just a few months the biennial IBMS Congress will return to the International Convention Centre in Birmingham. The focus once again will be on the very best that biomedical science and those supporting the scientific programme have to offer. To illustrate this, Pathology in Practice focuses on a small selection of topics and their respective speaker biographies.

An investment in learning and development sums up Congress exactly. Change continues to happen in pathology at an almost unprecedented pace, and this is a challenge for those needing to broaden their skills and knowledge. This is where Congress ticks so many boxes. Over four days there will be over 300 lectures across 15 different subjects and specialties. The following provides a glimpse of what’s on the scientific programme and, more importantly, the quality of the speakers contributing to the success of this biennial event.
