The Glasgow Molecular Pathology Node hosted its third successful annual conference on 12th September 2018 at the Queen Elizabeth Teaching and Learning Centre.

Conference delegates were updated on the progress and achievements of the Node over the last year and given examples from the current Node diagnostic pipeline. Guests were invited to network amongst vibrant displays from industry partners such as Agilent, BioClavis, Illumina, Menarini, Nanostring, Qiagen and ThermoFisher Scientific and had the opportunity to learn about current initiatives within Glasgow Polyomics and the Clinical Innovation Zone at the University of Glasgow.

Dr Karin Oien, Director of the Glasgow Molecular Pathology Node, commented: “The annual Node symposium represents a celebration of what we have achieved so far and also a fantastic opportunity to facilitate discussions of further collaboration. It is fantastic to see that the symposium continues to be supported by all of our stakeholders as demonstrated by the broad range of presentations, posters and exhibitors. The success of the Node is the result of working together with our partners and sister Molecular Pathology Nodes networks across the UK”.
