University of Glasgow, Molecular Pathology Node

We're delighted to invite you to the Fourth Annual Symposium of the Glasgow Molecular Pathology Node which will take place on Tuesday 29th October 2019 between 12:00 and 17:00 at the Teaching & Learning Centre, Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow, G51 4TF.

Register here.

The Glasgow Molecular Pathology Node was established in November 2015 with MRC/EPSRC funding as a multidisciplinary centre of innovative molecular diagnostic test discovery and development. It has been instrumental in bringing together a research base, pathology/genetic NHS services, and industry. The Node has been a collaboration between the University of Glasgow, NHS and industry partners, involving discovery researchers in biomedicine, bioengineering, biostatistics and health economics. Our funding has provided for staffing and high-quality training. The core infrastructure available through the Node has facilitated access to bio-repository, pathology, molecular pathology, informatics and health economics resources, and has been used to support funded biomarker research projects aimed at developing new and/or improved diagnostics.

In this Symposium we aim to showcase the work that has been undertaken by the Node over the past few years to build capacity and expertise in molecular pathology, genetics and informatics, and to provide highlights from our Node research pipeline for molecular diagnostics from discovery through validation and implementation.

The agenda, which can be found here, features a variety of presentations from colleagues across the University of Glasgow, NHSGG&C and industry and promises to be an exciting and inspiring event.

We anticipate that our event will be of interest to colleagues across academia, NHS and industry and we hope that you can join us for this celebratory event.
