Event description

Description

The third NMPN AGM will take place on 12th October 2018 at Nottinghamshire County Cricket Ground. NMPN was one of 6 UK Pathology Nodes established by the MRC/ESPRC in 2015 with 4 years of funding to develop new molecular diagnostics and train the next generation of molecular pathologists. NMPN is focused on respiratory and GI/liver disease and with the respiratory and GI/liver themes of the new Nottingham NIHR BRC form the Chronic Inflammation research priority area (RPA) at University of Nottingham.

The AGM will be an opportunity for us to share our progress with you to date and take a look towards the future of the Node.
