Dear Colleagues, dear Friends,
It is a great pleasure for us to welcome you at the Swiss Pathology Days, the 83rd Annual Meeting of the Swiss Society of Pathology 2017.
This year, several young staff pathologists and senior residents have had the unique opportunity to participate in the organization of the Swiss Pathology Days supported by the executive board of the Swiss Society of Pathology. As junior medical professionals, we would like to express our thanks to the Society for their assistance and the trust they have put in our team.
In pathology, we currently find ourselves in an exciting era. Advances in technology have opened up many new possibilities, not only in terms of diagnostic tests, but also in the areas of knowledge transfer and communication. The Swiss Pathology Days Appis one example of such recent innovation. The App will help you find your way during the conference, download lecture materials and abstracts, and will provide an interactive platform for the main sessions.
We are proud to present this year's scientific program, which we hope will appeal to both residents in training and experienced pathologists alike. Topics include pattern-based approaches to surgical pathology, an update on new classification systems and immunotherapy. Our competitive abstract submission process will give researchers a podium to present and discuss their projects.
Last but not least, several social events such as the Residents' reception, the traditional Gala dinner and an informal get-together evening are awaiting you. The impressive backdrop of the Swiss Alps combined with the excellent location and facilities of the KKThun and the Kongresshotel are sure to make for a memorable experience.
We are very much looking forward to welcoming you in Thun and to an exciting and informative meeting!
With best regards on behalf of the organization committee,
Dr. med. Heather Dawson Dr. med. Yasmine Ibrahim Dr. med. Karl-Friedrich Deml
