Diagnostics North East is an initiative that brings together the various research infrastructures, capabilities and resources that map to the development, research and innovation of diagnostic technologies available to both academic and commercial partners into a single cohesive structure that would lead to greater efficiencies, more visibility and greater opportunities to improve patient health and wellbeing through a common vision and a common approach. The role of Diagnostics North East is to provide timely and seamless services to support both industry and academia in the diagnostic sector.

The event will provide opportunities to meet with key experts and to discuss how they can support the development, evaluation and adoption of technologies into healthcare systems. Delegates will leave with all the information they need to partner and exploit the world-class resources available.
