The Biomedical Scientist Live

We are now just weeks away from the second The Biomedical Scientist Live virtual event, brought to you by the IBMS

Train the Trainer 24th November 2021

A daylong short course aimed at current or prospective trainers in diagnostic laboratories.

International Pathology Day 2021

The College launched International Pathology Day in 2014, together with pathology and laboratory medicine institutions worldwide. It has since become a valuable platform where the contribution and achievements of pathology and laboratory medicine services that work to address global health challenges and improve the health outcomes of global communities is recognised and celebrated.

Pathology is undergoing a digital revolution. Pathologists can now engage, evaluate, and collaborate rapidly and remotely, with transparency and consistency even when separated by thousands of miles, in ways never done before.

The growth in the use of digital pathology is also paving the way for artificial intelligence (AI) to become more widely integrated. AI has the potential to help provide faster diagnoses, as well as allowing international scientists to work more collaboratively to develop their understanding of disease and diagnostics.

On the day we will hear how digital pathology has made international collaborations between developed and middle-to-lower income countries possible and what some of the real-world issues to implementing digital and AI solutions into the lab will be. The day will also examine how pathologists, scientists and medical professionals will need to learn new ways of working in different surroundings, as technology moves us deeper into a digital age.

You can also look forward to:

•Hearing from the President of the Royal College of Pathologists, Professor Mike Osborn, on his first International Pathology Day as President.
•Talks from international and UK based experts in their field
•Viewing the digital poster competition entries, which is open to new entries until Friday 22nd October 23.59 (GMT)
•Enjoying a number of lunchtime activities
•The roundtable on the topic of: Can digital pathology break down international borders?

As well as our virtual event there are freely available digital resources and ideas from our event page that make it possible to get involved anywhere in the world. The registration fee is £25.
