Manchester Molecular Pathology Innovation Centre – Interdisciplinary Workshop: Engaging Engineers and Physical Scientists

View Event Details

The Manchester Molecular Pathology Innovation Centre (MMPathIC) is hosting an Interdisciplinary Workshop on 14th February 2018.

MMPathIC is co-funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and Medical Research Council (MRC), as both the EPSRC and MRC recognise the key role that the EPS disciplines will need to play to develop the next generation of diagnostic and molecular pathology tests.

To continue this necessary engagement, this workshop will bring together clinicians, biologists, engineers and physical scientists, to examine the hurdles that may need to be overcome for effective interdisciplinary working to achieve MMPathICs objective for new tests to be adopted in the clinic or market.

Investigators from the first round of pump priming awards will showcase the work that MMPathIC has already supported.

Additionally, this workshop will launch the second round call for the pump-priming flexible fund which is encompassed with the node’s activities, and for which UoM academics and MAHSC clinicians will be able to compete (up to £30k to foster interdisciplinary projects).

You are therefore invited to participate in this Interdisciplinary Workshop and share your expertise, experiences, interests, successes and failures and find out more about MMPathIC and funding available.

The workshop will start with lunch at 12:00 and finish at 17:00 (exact timings TBC).

Further details on the flexible funding pot, which will pump-prime novel interdisciplinary project, will be presented on the day.
