One Day CPD Seminar – Updates in Digital Pathology

May 2020

Venue – to be confirmed

Registration for this symposium will open in early 2020

Royal Society of Biology CPD credits will be applied for

Approximately 6 hours of educational activity will be recorded on the Attendance Certificates

The aim of this one-day seminar is to enable those working within the fields of toxicological, discovery, clinical, experimental or veterinary pathology to add to their continuing professional development on the topic of computational pathology. 

Digital pathology and artificial intelligence are set to disrupt the way pathologists in the biopharmaceutical industry are working and are likely to be the biggest change in this field in 100 years. The speed of progress is breath-taking, with a new break through being announced every month. In 2020, the BSTP is going to bring you an update on computational pathology, focussing on novel paradigms to analyse histology slide content. This one day continuing educational seminar aims to bring in leading experts in the field who will share the newest tools and approaches. On the provisional agenda: progress in normal vs. abnormal screening; beyond CovNets: novel mathematical approaches to image analysis; integrative digital pathology: creating a 3D map of lesions, proteins and genes; plus, updates on major digipath topics.

The 35th Annual Scientific Meeting of the BSTP – Pathology of Humanised Mouse Models

12th – 13th or 19th – 20th November 2020 – date to be confirmed

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 likely to become more and more 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.

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 promises 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 first day of the meeting will include the Annual General Meeting of the BSTP, followed by a drinks and canapé reception.

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