2015: Popular MMI Course ‘Techniques and Strategies in Molecular Medicine’ held in the UCD Conway Institute

The MMI course Techniques & Strategies in Molecular Medicine was held in the UCD Conway Institute on 16 &17 December 2015. The two-day course, which was in its 12th run this year, attracted over 60 attendees.

The course comprises a primer in technologies and methods in biomedical research and their applications. It provides a very useful forum for researchers to get ideas and advice and to benefit from expertise drawn from all five of MMI’s partner institutions: UCD, TCD, RCSI, UCC and NUI Galway. Throughout the course, there is a focus on translation to therapies.

All the topics covered as well as a full list of speakers can be found on the course page
