The European Society of Veterinary Pathology (ESVP), jointly with the European College of Veterinary Pathologists (ECVP) and the European Society of Toxicologic Pathology (ESTP), is pleased to invite you to the 4th Cutting Edge Pathology Congress, which will be held virtually from Wednesday 15th to Friday 17th September 2021. For more details and to register, please visit the Congress website. Early bird registration is open until July 31st.

The ESVP/ECVP will hold sessions on Thursday 16th and Friday 17th September dedicated to the themes of global health and emerging infectious diseases, novelties in oncology, forensic pathology and molecular techniques in veterinary pathology. In addition, there will be a half-day seminar on Wednesday 15th September for residents and/or PhD students on “Skills in Oral Communication and Poster Design”.

The parallel ESTP sessions will be on biomarkers and organ toxicity, with focus on the development and use of biomarkers in the process of preclinical development of new medicines, associated organ toxicity and their translatability to man.

Joint keynote lectures will be held on subjects with broad appeal, including biomarkers in pathology, coronavirus disease and discussion of interesting cases.
