The British In vitro Diagnostics Association (BIVDA) has appointed William Burns as president for a three-year term, in a move that is being branded as the beginning of a new era for the sector's leading voice in the UK. Mr Burns, with over 25 years' experience in the IVDs sector, including as president of the European Diagnostic Manufacturers Association (EDMA), replaces Brian Fishwick. "My wish as president of BIVDA is to truly establish the value of diagnostics and to ensure these advances benefit patients in the healthcare continuum," said Mr Burns, who is retiring from Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics, where he has been vice-president, international, for six years.
