BSTP – DIARY DATES

On behalf of the BSTP, I hope that you, your family and colleagues have managed to stay well during these unusual times.  As you are aware, all face to face events have been cancelled, not only by the BSTP but by almost every organisation worldwide.

During the time that these events have not been able to have been held, the BSTP have been looking at ways to ensure that they can continue to organise CPD events, whilst maintaining the safety requirements imposed by national governments.

So, I am pleased to let you know that from October 2020, the BSTP will start hosting remote meetings using Zoom or WebEx.

Details for these events are correct at the time this email is sent, the BSTP will not be held responsible for any changes to dates and topics of these meetings.

If there is anyone else (individual or company/organisation) who you think would be interested in receiving this information, please forward this information on to them or send their contact details to the BSTP Secretariat.

If you prefer not to receive details of these events, please contact the BSTP Secretariat – bstpoffice@aol.com so that your details can be removed from the mailing list.

FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES:  The BSTP are able to offer funding opportunities for individuals working within an “early career” environment, for example, stipendiary students/researchers studying/ working within a relevant scientific field, veterinary pathology residents and professional trainee pathologists working towards a professional qualification or gaining more experience within the field of toxicological pathology.

The September 2020 version of BSTP’s Guide to Educational Activities is now available on the BSTP Website .

Did you know that placing an advert with the BSTP is an effective way of reaching those working in the field of Toxicological, Experimental and Clinical Pathology in Europe and beyond.  It’s easy too.  Job postings can be placed online, both on the BSTP website and on the BSTP group LinkedIn page.  We accept other adverts too, with flexible options to suit your needs – CLICK HERE for more details

WEBINARS

Information about these webinars is also available on the home page of the BSTP website – http://www.bstp.org.uk/ with detailed information available in the members only area of the BSTP website.

For confidentiality reasons if you are not a member of the BSTP or any other recognised pathology society but, you are a veterinary student or resident, or an early career pathologist you will be required to provide written confirmation of your status from your Head of Department (on headed paper) before you are sent the dial in information.

As you are aware the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has had repercussions for all events in relation to regional and international travel and the BSTP is no different, so CES 3:  Carcinogenesis will be held via ZOOM.

If you registered and paid to attend this meeting in 2020 and have not received a refund or credit note, please contact the BSTP Secretariat.  Refunds via the online registration process are unable to be processed.

Approved by the Royal Society of Biology for the purposes of CPD, this event may be counted as approximately 54 credits

The 36th Annual Scientific Meeting of the BSTP

Pathology of Humanised Mouse Models

Thursday 11th and Friday 12th November 2021

Date and venue to be confirmed

 

Immunodeficient mice reconstituted with a human immune system are increasingly used for modelling the human immune compartment in numerous preclinical applications, such as adoptive cell therapy and immuno-oncology studies. With the advent of new Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products, humanised mice are  a key component of efficacy and safety assessment in preclinical programmes, including GLP studies. However, limited information is available concerning the morphological aspects of human cell engraftment and the spectrum of spontaneous and experimentally induced histopathological lesions occurring in these mice.

Working with the Pathological Society of Great Britain and Ireland the meeting will cover the main features of the different humanised mouse platforms; their experimental applications in drug development, oncology and gene and cell therapies; specific safety and regulatory considerations; and future promise and remaining challenges. A short session will be also devoted to chimeric mice with humanised livers, as tools for the study of human drug metabolism and toxicity.  The aim is also to have parallel sessions covering ‘mouse pathology’ and ‘humanised mice in preclinical studies: context and regulatory aspects’.

The first day of the meeting will include the Annual General Meeting of the BSTP.

Keep checking the website for details of bursaries and the submission of abstracts for case presentations.

Laboratory Animal Science Association & Fish Veterinary Society

Fish Anaesthesia – Time to re-convene

Edinburgh, Thursday 4th March 2021

Since the acclaimed 2017 LASA-FVS meeting on the topic, fish anaesthesia has seen significant developments with new products being authorized for use in the UK, publications of efficient provisions of analgesia, and gatherings of data on euthanasia. It is now time to re-convene a group of experts to discuss latest advances and remaining challenges.

Please contact the LASA Secretariat info@lasa.co.uk to express your interest in attending this meeting and joining instructions will be sent closer to the date of the event.
