Held at the ICC in Birmingham, IBMS Congress is the largest dedicated biomedical science conference in the UK. This year talks on animals take the stage on Tuesday 24 September as the conference will see its first ever veterinary programme.

From discussions on canine cancer and zoonotic diseases to feline TB and penguin malaria in the UK, these talks are essential for laboratory staff working in the veterinary sciences.

Veterinary microbiologist Dawn Alderson said, “Involvement with the Institute of Biomedical Science is becoming increasingly relevant to those of us who are scientists working in veterinary laboratories. This is the first year that a programme devoted to veterinary sciences has been created at the Institute’s biennial Congress, which really is something to celebrate.

"This source of valuable CPD for us is open to all attendees at Congress, giving those working in other fields such as human medicine, research and academia an opportunity to learn something of what we do, and to reconsider a 'One Health’ approach to health.”
