Engineering/Physical Sciences and MMPathIC Workshop

Time: 1200 - 1700

Venue: Chancellors Conference Centre

Sorry, this event has now ended.

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

To kick start this necessary engagement, this first workshop (originally scheduled in April, but moved due to lack of availability) will bring together clinicians, biologists, engineers and physical scientists, to examine the hurdles that may need to be overcome for effective inter-disciplinary working to achieve MMPathICs objective to get new tests to the clinic or market.

Further details on the flexible funding pot (which comprises Workstrand 6 “Innovation and Technologies” of the MMPathIC bid, led by Professor Roy Goodacre) which will pump prime novel interdisciplinary projects will be presented. The event will be an opportunity to influence the criteria around how this funding is allocated, and for which UoM academics and MAHSC researchers/ clinicians will be able to compete (offering £10-30k per project).
