Our vision

Our vision of Glasgow Molecular Pathology Node image

The vision of the Glasgow Molecular Pathology Node is to transform the management of cancer and chronic disease by accelerating biomedical research, high quality healthcare provision and economic growth.

We will achieve this by working in partnership with discovery researchers from the College’s Institutes for Cancer Sciences, Infection, Immunity and Inflammation, and Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences and with industry to create a multidisciplinary centre of excellence in research and development of molecular diagnostic tests.

Our strategic focus and objectives are to enhance our capability in molecular pathology and informatics, through staffing and high quality training to further build capacity and expertise. This will enable enhanced delivery and development of clinical molecular pathology; and will underpin the parallel development of pipelines for molecular diagnostics from discovery through validation and implementation.
