Pathcare Research Committee

To establish and support a culture of research at PathCare


The Pathology Research Committee (PRC) is a subcommittee of the Board, and acts to secure the integrity of research done at PathCare.  This includes operational research, evaluating best practice, research linked to educational programmes or degrees, research aimed at publications and research/innovations with a view to new developments and/or products. The committee facilitates and enables research by providing an easy to use structure to register projects, update progress reports and to link investigators to resources that can support their work.
