David Wells


The most unexpected moment of David’s career was when he found himself leading the COVID-19 testing response for NHS England.

He was also responsible for expanding NHS testing capacity from 2,000 to 25,000 tests per day. David is now Chief Executive at the Institute of Biomedical Science, leading the professional body for biomedical scientists with more than 20,000 scientists, support staff and students. David’s unique positions, coupled with his experience and scientific contributions, have made a huge impact.
