UK - Molecular Diagnostics Training School 2019
NMPN & the Pathological Society of Great Britain & Ireland

The Molecular diagnostics Training School is returning for its fifth year in 2019. The 3 day course will run from 23rd - 25th September 2019 at the Park Plaza Hotel in Nottingham.

 

Overview

Diagnostic Molecular Pathology is the interrogation of tissue-derived molecules (DNA/RNA/protein) to provide clinically useful information adjunctive to routine histopathological examination. The Nottingham Molecular Pathology Node (NMPN), supported by The Pathological Society of Great Britain and Ireland, will run the fifth training school in Diagnostic Molecular Pathology which aims to:

  • Teach the theory and utility/limitations of commonly used tests

  • Provide a comprehensive overview of the current use of molecular diagnostics

The course is suitable for Trainee and Consultant Pathologists with little or no experience of diagnostic molecular pathology and for non-clinical scientists (who may have some experience with molecular testing) wishing to learn more about the clinical application of molecular diagnostics. Teaching will be delivered in the form of formal didactic lectures, interactive tutorials and problem-solving exercises.

 

This event is now fully booked
