Profile: Dr. Michael Noble: a microbiologist with a passion for patient safety in lab testing

Image
Forty million lab tests are done in B.C. annually. Each and every one is an opportunity for human error leading to patient harm.

In a bid to avert errors in collection, handling and analysis, a small team at the University of B.C. manufactures simulated specimens to send to labs across Canada. Technologists can maintain, or improve, their skills by practising on them.

The Clinical Microbiology Proficiency Testing (CMPT) program is led by a giant in Canadian microbiology — Dr. Michael Noble, a pathology and lab medicine professor.

He may have a low public profile, but internationally, he’s widely regarded as a pioneer and innovator in the field of microbiology quality assurance for patient safety.
