Welcome from the President
As the President of the Australasian Division of the International Academy of Pathology, it is my great pleasure to welcome you in advance to our 40th Annual Scientific Meeting which will be held from 3rd of June to the 5th of June 2016 at the Brisbane Convention Centre.
For more than 4 decades, the Australasian Division of the IAP has organised outstanding scientific meetings for pathologists, registrars and scientists. The 2016 Annual Meeting will continue this tradition! The event will assemble pathology leaders from around the world to share their knowledge and expertise, exchange ideas and highlight the latest advances in this challenging field.
I am especially excited that 3 outstanding Pathologists, Professor John R Goldblum from Cleveland USA, Professor Ricardo Lloyd from Wisconsin USA, and Professor Adrienne M Flanagan from London have agreed to be the Keynote Speakers for the event. Professor Fiona Bonar will be delivering the Vincent McGovern Memorial Lecture. Each of these gifted orators will enlighten, entertain and educate you about recent advancements in the field in a wide array of slide seminars and lectures.
We will also present a comprehensive collection of Companion meeting sessions which will run throughout the day on Friday. A detailed program of these sessions will be available on the website shortly.
In addition to the education sessions on Friday, a delightful social program awaits us that evening where a Welcome Reception/Cocktail Party has been arranged. This will provide each of you an opportunity to catch up with friends, meet new colleagues and interact with experts and leaders from all around the world on a personal level.
Registrations for the event will open in late November 2015. The latest information about the event will be available on this regularly updated conference website.
Mark your calendars now, register early, and don't miss this program. I look forward to seeing each of you in Brisbane.
Professor Richard Scolyer
