The Association for Laboratory Medicine launches new name and website

The Association for Clinical Biochemistry and Laboratory Medicine has changed its name to the Association for Laboratory Medicine and unveiled its new logo and branding.

The Association’s website has also relaunched with the new identity at labmed.org.uk.

The Association commented: “This new name and brand better reflects our current members, is open and inclusive to new members in other disciplines in laboratory medicine. This will support our ambition of becoming the voice of laboratory medicine for our members, our partners and the general public.”

The change in name was agreed after members were surveyed in March 2023 and ratified at the AGM in June 2023.

As a membership organisation the Association says it is aiming to change and innovate in order to respond to its member’s needs as well as the changing environment that impacts on laboratory medicine. The Association aims to continue growing membership with its current target audience, particularly in fields of immunology and microbiology which are currently underrepresented, but also to diversify its membership to other fields of laboratory medicine.

Association President Katharine Hayden said: "The evolution of our name better reflects the breadth of our membership and provides us with the opportunity to bring together scientists who play a key role in influencing best practice in service delivery and diagnostic innovation, and to respond to the changing roles and clinical practice of professionals across laboratory medicine."
