Past ESVP Meetings
Last Updated: 30 August 2022

In light of recent global and national developments, the ESTP, ESVP and ECVP, as well as their Scientific and Local Organising committees have made the difficult but sensible decision to postpone our joint Cutting Edge Pathology congress by one year, to the end of August / beginning of September 2021 in Torino, Italy.

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

The European Society of Toxicologic Pathology (ESTP), jointly with the European Society of Veterinary Pathology (ESVP) and the European College of Veterinary Pathologists (ECVP), has the privilege to invite you at the 4th Cutting Edge Pathology Congress, which will be held at Campus Luigi Einaudi in Turin (Italy) from Wednesday August 26th to Saturday 29th 2020.

This joint meeting, organized every 3 years, will be an ideal and stimulating opportunity to meet a large number or veterinary and toxicologic pathologists from different fields of expertise and specialization. As well, it will be a unique chance for junior/future pathologists and other professionals to get in touch with many experienced scientists and internationally known experts.

A Scientific Committee, comprising both nationally and internationally recognized experts, is responsible for the preparation of the scientific program. There will be joint keynote lectures, as well as parallel ESTP and ESVP/ECVP sessions. The topics of the ESTP part will be Biomarkers and Organ Toxicity. focused on the development and use of biomarkers in the process or preclinical development of new medicines, associated organ toxicity and the relevance/translatability of biomarkers to man. The scientific program will also include INHAND sessions, additional highly relevant topics of interest for toxicologic pathologists, as well as interactive case presentations and poster sessions.

The ESVP/ ECVP part will include interactive workshops, educational sessions and dynamic presentations of scientific results. There will also be a trade exhibition where books, new equipment and techniques, services of contract laboratories and much more will be presented. Further information and details on the scientific program, abstract submission, congress registration and sponsorship will be soon available on the ESTP, ESVP and ECVP homepages.
