Molecular Diagnostics

This course will present the state-of-the-art of Molecular Diagnostics, as applied in many areas of healthcare, such as Clinical Genetics, Infectious Diseases, Complex Diseases, Forensic Science, and a broad spectrum of oncological adaptations. The course is intended for translational researchers as well as doctors and medical specialists operating outside of their initial field of research, but also PhD-students and technicians are welcome. This course is a yearly updated version of the first issues organized from 2007 on. It will be given in English.

Date: Sep 9 – 10, 2014
