AMP 2013 Molecular Pathology Outreach Course

AMP 2013 Molecular Pathology Outreach Course

AMPlicons: A Practical Molecular Toolkit and Case Studies

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

8:30am - 3:45pm, MST

Hyatt Regency Phoenix

Phoenix, Arizona, USA

Presented by the AMP Training & Education Committee

Course Description:

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. Emphasis will be placed on molecular testing in the areas of clinical genetics, solid tumors, hematopathology, and infectious diseases. The application of novel technologies such as next generation sequencing will be highlighted.

Who Should Attend?
Pathologists, residents, laboratory directors and technologists who have little experience with molecular diagnostic testing.
