CES 3: Carcinogenesis
CES 3: Carcinogenesis
Tuesday 23rd – Thursday 25th March 2021 (to be confirmed)
CES 3 – Carcinogenesis
As you are aware the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is having repercussions for a number of events in relation to regional and international travel.
To ensure the safety and well-being of our organisers, participants and speakers, and also the staff at the Department of Pathology, a decision has reluctantly been taken to postpone CES 3: Carcinogenesis which was due to take place on 24th – 26th March 2020.
Unfortunately because the long term effect of the virus is not known at this time, rather than reschedule this symposium for later on in the year (with the possibility that this too may need to be cancelled), the plan is for the symposium to be rearranged for March 2021, with the provisional dates being Tuesday 23rd to Thursday 25th March 2021 or alternatively, Tuesday 16th March to Thursday 18th March 2021.
The BSTP are unable to confirm the new dates until late spring/early summer 2020, but as soon as the new dates for the symposium have been confirmed, the details will be posted here.
The aim of the Continuing Education Symposium series is to provide an interactive environment to enhance your knowledge in the field of toxicological, discovery, clinical, experimental or veterinary pathology. The Continuing Education Symposiums are designed to refresh participants’ knowledge and understanding of core principles, as well as discuss any important recent advances.
Approved by the Royal Society of Biology for the purposes of CPD, this event may be counted as 54 credits
Approximately 17.5 hours of educational activity will be recorded on Attendance Certificates
This Continuing Education Symposium 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.
The format will include presentations, case histories and the active participation of delegates. The Continuing Education Symposium will be of 3 days duration and the programme will be arranged such that each individual day can be attended as stand-alone CPD if desired.
The programme and updated information will be available in due course.
It is unlikely that registration for this meeting will open before late autumn/early winter 2020, however, if you would like further information before then, please contact the BSTP Secretariat – firstname.lastname@example.org
