    In your biomedical sciences personal statement should you mention both the importance of research in science and testing samples when applying to IBMS accredited unis and unis that are not accredited.

    Wouldn't mentioning the importance of lab based work turn away unis that aren't accredited.

    whats the best way to deal with my dilemma?

    Whether accredited or not most unis will be doing research. Their sole purpose for existence isn't to train biomed scientists. People who do accredited degrees go on to do research as well. If lab work and research interests you talk about it but about why it's interesting to you with specific examples rather than being preachy about why research is important.
