Join the IFBLS Scientific Network
The International Federation of Biomedical Laboratory Science (IFBLS) Board of Directors has created the IFBLS Scientific Network - which consists of qualified Biomedical Laboratory Scientists - and they would like to receive applications from IBMS members in all laboratory disciplines.
The IFBLS has a working relationship with the World Health Organization (WHO) and receives calls for experts and volunteers for development of WHO documents and tasks. Members of their network assist in document review or projects which benefit the development of laboratory medicine and international standards for the profession.
Members of the Scientific Network may also be invited to submit articles, or serve as peer reviewers and editors for the International Journal of Biomedical Laboratory Science (IJBLS).
The Scientific Network also contributes to the development of the IFBLS as the global voice of Biomedical Laboratory Scientists.
To be considered a member of the Scientific Network you should be:
- member of a national IFBLS member association (IE: IBMS)
- educated as a Biomedical Laboratory Scientist, preferably with MSc, PhD or equivalent. Experience within your area of expertise can replace academic qualifications
- considered an expert in your respective discipline, qualifications include for instance:
- Publications in peer-reviewed journals
- Lecturers at national and/or international conferences
- Other relevant publications or activities
The list of volunteers will be maintained by the IFBLS office. All volunteers will be contacted as needed.
