Biomedical scientist



Biomedical scientists are the brains behind our medical operations in the field, running laboratories which screen patients for disease.

They keep things in perspective - aiding clinicians in their essential diagnoses. This involves testing for illness, training local staff as lab technicians, and monitoring the impact of our response to disease outbreaks.

Natural teachers, observers and analytic thinkers, biomedical scientists shine a light in often dark, confusing circumstances.
