The activity of the Molecular Diagnostics Unit (MDU) is primarily focused on providing an abundant assortment of molecular assays to clinicians working in hospitals of the Spanish National Health System; our aim is to support the management of their patients with different cancers. Occasionally, MDU also provides support, with its technical expertise and logistics, to CNIO’s Clinical Research Units and Research Groups. Furthermore, in order to keep our catalogue updated, our efforts are persistently geared towards strengthening, upgrading and reducing the turnaround times and costs of the assays that are currently available. Also, with the aim of further expanding our end users portfolio, we are tasked with implementing and offering new molecular tests based on the latest discoveries in the field and/or the needs of clinicians or researchers. Finally, a crucial part of our mission is to host professionals and students who aspire to be instructed in this area.
