III Ed. Molecular biology and pathology intensivas

Welcome to the 3rd online edition of the course of intensive molecular biology and pathology!

During the last five years, Pathology has definitely entered the era of molecular diagnosis where it has a fundamental role and where it is a link between the laboratory and the clinical disciplines.

The changes that are taking place are being very fast and often dramatic, from both a technical and conceptual point of view: the diagnosis of pathologies is no longer understood only from a morphological point of view if it is not accompanied by one each increasingly complex prognostic and predictive molecular information.

Unfortunately, and despite the past years, the young specialists of this and other specialties have limited access and insufficient knowledge of molecular technology, already essential to practice their profession.

Thus, we have deepened the knowledge of cancer genomics and carcinogenesis, in the molecular management of solid tumors such as lung and colon cancer, introducing a review of the knowledge of the immune response. It is our desire that this course be useful both to pathologists and other specialists to adapt to the new challenges of Medicine and that this translates into benefit for patients.

All the contents offered in the X course face-to-face are organized here by themes, corresponding to the presentations of each of the doctors. Within each unit, apart from the conference, which can be displayed in High Definition, they have a handout (pdf) that expands information and a self-assessment with test questions (no limit of attempts). In some cases, there are also links to go deeper into the subject.

We hope it helps you in your daily practice.
