Media Fellow for 2023 announced

Media Fellow for 2023 announced
22 March 2023
The IBMS-sponsored ABSW Media Fellowship has been awarded to Sheri Scott FIBMS

To support our aims to promote biomedical science to the public and to help ensure our media presence, the IBMS is proud to sponsor a media placement for our members. For the third year, we have sponsored a place on the Association of British Science Writers (ABSW) Media Fellowship scheme.

The ABSW Fellowships provides a unique opportunity for practicing scientists, clinicians and engineers to spend two to six weeks working at the heart of a media outlet such as The Guardian, BBC Breakfast or Sky News. The chosen Fellow gains the chance to work within the media, understand why and how stories are selected and then collaborate with journalists.

Following the selection process, the IBMS-sponsored ABSW Media Fellowship for 2023 has been awarded to Sheri Scott FIBMS.

On winning the placement, Sheri stated:

"I am excited and thrilled to be awarded the opportunity of the IBMS Media Fellowship.  I have a passion for my profession and the role it plays in healthcare, for professional development, for environmental protection and for promoting public health.

I eagerly look forward to developing new science communication skills, which will aid in the knowledge exchange of these topics, raise the profile of the biomedical scientist profession, while bringing back those skills to the university in order to develop our biomedical science students of the future."

Sheri's placement will take place later in the year once a suitable media organisation has been identified and dates for Sheri to attend.
