EDUCATION

Attend a Workshop

View Online Corporate Workshops (OCWs) are free for all attendees. They are a year-round extension of the popular Corporate Workshops presented each year at the AMP Annual Meeting. They are free to the public and therefore are valuable opportunities for everyone to learn to learn from industry representatives and scientific experts about the latest advances and instrumentation relevant to molecular diagnostics and research. OCWs are presented on weekday afternoons for one hour, and are conducted by commercial companies. Upcoming OCWs will be announced to AMP members on CHAMP, including registration information, as well as posted on this webpage.
