Information about BSTP webinars is 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.

Registration to take part in the webinars is free with the dial in details provided one week prior to the date of the webinar.

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.

Virtual Continuing Education Symposium 4:  Respiratory System

6th – 15th July 2021

13.00 – 16.30 (GMT+1/UCT+1)

Registration for this symposium will open in December 2020/January 2021 with numbers limited to a maximum of 50 – registration will close at midnight on 8th June 2021!

Continuing Education Symposium 4 will be held on the afternoons of Tuesday 6th, Wednesday 7th, Thursday 8th, Tuesday 13th, Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th July 2021, from 13.00 – 16.30 (GMT+1/UCT+1) each day.

As you are aware the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has had repercussions for all events in relation to regional and international and the BSTP is no different, so CES 4:  Respiratory System will be held via ZOOM.  If restrictions continue to be in place for the foreseeable future, this situation may also have an effect on future CES but hopefully there may be a clearer understanding of the ‘new normal’ in 2121.

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

Approximately 17.5 hours of educational activity will be recorded on Attendance Certificates

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.
