Diagnostic Test Evaluations Workshop: The Pathway of Evidence Generation

29/04/2020 1:00 pm @ Helix

Event Details

  • Helix, Bath Lane, Newcastle upon Tyne NE4 5TF


This workshop will be held the afternoon before the “3rd Annual Diagnostics North East Conference 2020: Precision Medicine – Basic Science, Diagnostics and Therapeutics” and is tailored to individuals from industry, academia and healthcare who have an interest in developing diagnostic clinical tests and devices.

We aim to educate attendees about the evidence they need to generate in order for their diagnostics to have the best chance of being adopted into the UK healthcare system. Delegates will also have the opportunity to meet with the NIHR Newcastle MIC and our collaborators and discuss the support we can provide during these research steps.
