UK - Molecular Diagnostics Training School 2020
NMPN & the Pathological Society of Great Britain & Ireland

The Molecular diagnostics Training School is returning for its sixth year in 2020. The 3 day course will run from 28th - 30th September and will be delivered entirely online.



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 live online lectures, Q&A sessions with interactive elements. 



This course has been awarded 17 CPD points by the Royal College of Pathologists for the full 3 day course. Delegates will receive  a CPD certificate by email following their attendance at the event.
