Inaugural patho-epidemiology of prostate cancer course

The first run of the MMI course ‘Integrative methods for prostate cancer research: bridging molecular and population science’ took place in the Institute of Molecular Medicine St James’s Hospital on 14 June 2013.

Approximately fifty people attended this one-day course which provided in-depth exposure to fundamentals of epidemiology and molecular pathology of prostate cancer.

Lectures were followed by interactive small group discussion where participants applied material from the previous sessions by designing studies that integrated pathology and epidemiology.
