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) & University of Vienna will run the residential 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.

Programme coming soon. To be notified further information is available, contact Gertrude Krainz at

The Nottingham Molecular Pathology Node is thrilled to be working in collaboration with the University of Vienna, to deliver the Molecular Diagnostics Training School there for the second time in May 2019. 

The School will take place from 13th May 2019 at the General Hospital of Vienna.
