Molecular Pathology Outreach Course (separate registration)
Wednesday, November 4, 8:30am - 3:45pm
New models of medical practice are evolving with increasing attention to the molecular pathology of diseases. The introduction of molecular testing into the clinical laboratories has increased our ability to provide novel types of information to health care providers. This course will provide an overview of techniques and instrumentation used in molecular testing from the framework of the "Molecular Pathology/Molecular Diagnostic Toolkit." The methodologies and technologies that comprise this toolkit will be introduced, followed by case discussions to demonstrate how these tools are employed in the molecular testing laboratory and the informatics pipeline. Emphasis will be placed on molecular testing in the areas of clinical genetics, solid tumors, hematopathology, and infectious diseases. The application of technologies; such as, next-generation sequencing and informatics, will be highlighted.
