The Nottingham Molecular Pathology Node (NMPN), supported by The Pathological Society of Great Britain and Ireland, will run the Molecular Diagnostics Training School.


  • Teaching will be delivered in the form of formal didactic lectures, interactive tutorials and problem-solving exercises.
  • 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.
