The XXXI International Congress of the International Academy of Pathology and the 28th Congress of the European Society of Pathology was for the first time organised as a joint venture. It was held, from 25 September to 29 September 2016, in the KölnMesse in Cologne, Germany.
The motto of the Congress – Predictive Pathology, Guiding and Monitoring Therapy – indicates the future role of pathology as a strong partner for the different clinical specialties.
The scientific programme included science, translational research and clinical application to provide delegates with information on recent research findings, new technologies and up to date education.
In addition to providing an interesting scientific and educational programme the IAP/ESP 2016 meeting served as a get-together for pathologists and scientists from all over the world in a friendly atmosphere.
