Dear Colleagues and Friends,

The ESTP, ESVP and ECVP in association with SFPT and SFAPV cordially invite you to attend the 3rd Cutting Edge Pathology Scientific Congress, held at the Université Catholique in Lyon, France from 30th August to 2nd September 2017.

Veterinary and toxicologic pathologists from all fields of expertise and specialization, but also junior pathologists and other stakeholders, regardless of their age and training status, are welcomed and will find it a highly stimulating and inclusive environment for scientific and personal discussions, continuing education, professional orientation and board examination preparations.

A broad spectrum of cutting edge topics will be presented by internationally renowned keynote speakers, expert scientists, leading veterinary pathologists. We will also offer special workshops and seminars particularly suited for pathologists in training or in specific specialty fields.

ESTP sessions focusing on translational sciences are carefully planned by the Scientific Organizing Committee. The program will also include INHAND sessions, additional topics of highly relevant interest for toxicologic pathologists and nonclinical safety scientists. There will be plenary lectures, interactive case presentations, and poster sessions.

ECVP/ESVP will organize parallel sessions.

Before the Cutting Edge meeting, the IATP, the CL Davis foundation and the SFAPV will held their own meetings.

Further information, abstract submission and registration, including information on sponsorships for pathologists in training, will be available soon at

In addition to the scientific program, you will have the opportunity to discover Lyon. The University is conveniently located close to the historic city center which is a World Heritage Site.

On behalf of the Scientific and Local Organizing committees, it will be our pleasure and honor to welcome you all to Lyon for the 3rd Cutting Edge Pathology Scientific Congress. We are excited to receive your abstract proposals for oral and poster contributions and look forward to your participation.

Catherine Botteron, co-chair, Scientific Organizing Committee, ESTP
