Disruptive Technology in Pathology, 10th – 11th October 2018

October 10 - October 11

Venue: Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, 27 Sussex Place, London NW1 4RG


The Royal College of Pathologists & Association of Clinical Pathologists, held in collaboration with the British in Vitro Diagnostics Association

Rapid advances in technology are impacting all areas of pathology. Over the next few years we can expect to see even more amazing things come into our world and into our practice.

This meeting highlights some of the most advanced recent developments, and shows some of the ways in which these developments are about to change patient care. This special meeting brings together pathologists, industry and world experts across a range of areas, to showcase innovations that are changing healthcare and diagnostics in the practice of pathology.

We not only have internationally renowned individuals who are at the cutting edge of developments such as hand held gene sequencers, scanning mass spectroscopy, and augmented reality, but also speakers who are putting real innovation into practice, both in the setting of clinical trials, as well as large scale clinical implementation.

The programme includes a ‘Path Dragon’ session where cutting edge start up and SMEs will pitch to the audience, and an expert panel.

The event is aimed at current and training pathologists who want to find out what they will be doing and dealing with in the near future, and how they can innovate and bring their innovations into practice.

Confirmed speakers include;

  • Professor John Pasi, whose gene therapy for haemophilia A has been described as ‘game changing’
  • Professor Graham Foster, who developed treatment for hepatitis C and who is now tasked with eliminating it in the UK
  • Professor Shafi Ahmed, surgeon and augmented and virtual reality guru, entrepreneur and the first to live international webcast his operations for teaching.
