Supported by the Pathological Society of Great Britain & Ireland, the fourth annual Molecular Diagnostics Training School (MDTS) will take place from 24th - 26th September 2018 at the Park Plaza Hotel, Nottingham City Centre.

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) will run the fourth 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.
