Biomedical Scientist of the Year 2020 - Dr Guy Orchard 

In 2020 the award was presented to IBMS Fellow and consultant Biomedical Scientist  Dr Guy Orchard said upon winning:

"It is a tremendous honour to receive this award. I was nominated in respect of two innovations I researched in my laboratory and which are now commercially available products worldwide. I feel very strongly when people say that biomedical scientists do not do research, we definitely do and our work has the potential to make a significant contribution to our diagnostic services.
I was therefore delighted when my laboratory-based research and product innovations received this recognition by my peers and my professional body."

Listen to Guy speaking about his win and how the inspiration for his innovations came from the most unlikely of places -  a trip to the local delicatessen - on IBMS POD.
