Description

Welcome to the 2nd joint RSM and Pathological Society winter meeting! This year’s theme is “Let’s talk about Precision Pathology!”. During this two day meeting, delegates will be updated on the importance of precision pathology in a range of areas, including accurate diagnoses across a wide spectrum of neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions, and subsequent patient treatment and management.Delegates will get an insight into exciting emerging novel technologies that are already being used, and others that are soon to be incorporated into routine pathology. Experianced pathologists will look at how the resultant data from these technologies can be analysed via Computational Pathology, and incorporated into ‘real time’ and ‘real world’ systems.Finally, delegates will hear about how innovative technologies (e.g. 3D printing and Virtual Reality) can be used to enhance pathology teaching and training at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. topics include: The importance of ‘precision pathology’ in ‘personalised medicine’ The increasing range of molecular tests being applied across neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions, improving the precision of diagnosis and patient management The importance of equal access to molecular testing across the UK for both gendersEmerging novel technologies that may soon be incorporated into routine pathology, and the new data interpretation opportunities these will provide Examples of novel methodologies of pathology training international key speakers: Sir Professor Munir Pirmohamed, Clinical Pharmacologist, Geneticist and the NHS Chair of Pharmacogenetics, UKProfessor Joanne Martin, President of the Royal College of Pathologists, Professor of Pathology, Queen Mary University of London and Director of Academic Health Sciences, Barts Health NHS TrustProfessor Charles Eberhart, Director of Neuropathology and Ophthalmic Pathology at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, and Editor of the latest WHO CNS tumour volume, USA Professor Anna-Dorothea Wagner, Specialist in Gender-based approaches to studying and treating disease, Lausanne University Hospital, Switzerland Professor Christopher Griffiths, Director of the Manchester Centre for Dermatology Research, and Head of the Dermatology Theme of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Manchester Biomedical Research Centre, UK Professor Katrin Kerl, Specialist in Precision Dermatopathology, University of Zurich, SwitzerlandDr Ian Frayling, Goudie Award Lecturer – “Seeing patterns – the value of studying hereditary cancer”, and Member of Council, International Society for Gastrointestinal Hereditary Tumours (InSiGHT), UKProfessor Paul McMenamin, Professor of Anatomy with novel ideas for teaching undergraduate science and medical students, and is renowned within 3D printing industry, Australia Dr Jason Hipp, Associate of Google Ltd, and Expert on Artificial Intelligence, renowned within the AI and Data industry, USA Professor Ann Blandford, Director of the UCL Institute for Digital Health, renowned within industry, UK ratesEarly bird rates are available now, but will expire and increase on Monday 17 December 2018RSM member: £0 (free) – £192Pathological Society: £0 (free) – £192Non-member: £40 – £320
