In the continually evolving world of today's science, it is imperative be aware of the intellectual bases behind new scientific discoveries and on how these could be or already are, translated into clinic practice.

Attendance to the first conference on "New Developments In Science for Practicing Clinicians" will provide an opportunity to Consultants and Junior Doctors for an update on the new frontiers of clinical science.

Topics include: genetics, proteomics, biomarkers, flow cytometry, models of disease and much more.
