 Approved by the Royal Society of Biology for the purposes of CPD, this event may be counted as approximately 54 credits
Approximately 17.5 hours of educational activity will be recorded on Attendance Certificates

Registration for this symposium is still open - nearly 50% of the places have been taken, with numbers limited to a maximum of 50 delegates! 

 << Due to the reduced logistical requirements for this virtual symposium, the BSTP have been able to extend the early registration fee to 5th February 2021 and the closing date for registration to Friday 19th February 2021 >>

Continuing Education Symposium 3 will be held over two weeks - on the afternoons of Tuesday 2nd, Wednesday 3rd, Thursday 4th, Tuesday 9th, Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th March 2021, from 13.00 – 16.30 (GMT+0/UCT+0) each day.

Access to the downloadable course materials and Zoom login information will be provided up to one week in advance of the symposium to all those who have registered and paid.

This virtual CES will provide an overview on carcinogenesis and the challenges with current research models. Topics to be covered include (but are not limited to): cancer in man and the history of carcinogenesis; investigation of the pathogenic mechanisms involved in carcinogenesis; significance and interpretation of neoplasia in laboratory rodents; use of immunohistochemistry for tumour identification; an overview of animal models of cancer; Inhalation toxicity and carcinogenesis; the regulatory view of carcinogenicity testing; and will include lectures, presentations, and case histories.

The 36th Annual Scientific Meeting of the BSTP and AGM

Pathology of Humanised Mouse Models
Thursday 11th and Friday 12th November 2021
Date and venue to be confirmed

Immunodeficient mice reconstituted with a human immune system are increasingly used for modelling the human immune compartment in numerous preclinical applications, such as adoptive cell therapy and immuno-oncology studies. With the advent of new Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products, humanised mice are  a key component of efficacy and safety assessment in preclinical programmes, including GLP studies. However, limited information is available concerning the morphological aspects of human cell engraftment and the spectrum of spontaneous and experimentally induced histopathological lesions occurring in these mice.

Working with the Pathological Society of Great Britain and Ireland the meeting will cover the main features of the different humanised mouse platforms; their experimental applications in drug development, oncology and gene and cell therapies; specific safety and regulatory considerations; and future promise and remaining challenges. A short session will be also devoted to chimeric mice with humanised livers, as tools for the study of human drug metabolism and toxicity.  The aim is also to have parallel sessions covering ‘mouse pathology’ and ‘humanised mice in preclinical studies: context and regulatory aspects’.

The first day of the meeting will include the Annual General Meeting of the BSTP.

Keep checking the website for details of bursaries and the submission of abstracts for case presentations.
