May 12–14, 2014 Pathology for Nonpathologists

This joint ACT/STP course, held every other year, will be held at BioReliance in 2014. The lectures are given by highly respected pathologists with current, relevant experience in toxicologic pathology. Lectures will cover anatomy and physiology, spontaneous and chemically-induced pathological changes, clinical pathology and case examples. The knowledge gained will be immediately applicable to your day-to-day practices. Different organs or systems are featured in subsequent courses.

June 28–July 2, 2014 Teratology Society 54th Annual Meeting

Abstract Deadline February 15

The theme of the 54th Annual Meeting of the Teratology Society is “Pushing the Boundaries of Birth Defects Research” which will highlight the latest scientific information and technology in birth defects and developmental disabilities research. The meeting will also feature special programs for the next generation of birth defects researchers including a workshop on building a career in developmental toxicology and a NEW Student Innovative Design Competition for improving prenatal development and child health. This competition invites bioengineering students and other students to imagine novel solutions to technical problems in the broad field of teratology—encompassing anything from a new measurement technique for exposure to environmental contaminants during pregnancy to a wireless method for assessing fetal health. Symposia topics include early prenatal diagnosis of birth defects, testicular dysgenesis syndrome, epigenetics, and thrombosis during pregnancy. The interdisciplinary nature of the Society provides unique opportunities to look broadly at these complex issues. The 54th Annual Meeting of the Teratology Society will be held June 28–July 2, 2014, in Bellevue, Washington located on the eastside of Seattle.

September 13–17, 2014 Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society 45th Annual Meeting

This year’s theme is “Integrating Environmental, Genomic, and Health Research.” The meeting will provide a forum for the latest research on DNA damage and repair, mechanisms of mutagenesis, epigenetic regulation, and their contributions to environmentally–induced human disease. In addition, current regulatory issues and risk assessment strategies will be discussed. EMGS is unique in that it provides a platform for the cross-disciplinary integration of basic and applied sciences that provide an understanding of the impact of genetic toxicity on human populations. The goals of this meeting are to 1) build on our past contributions to the field of environmental and molecular mutagenesis and DNA repair and more fully understand the role of epigenetics in these basic mechanisms; 2) integrate applied genetic toxicology with basic research in DNA damage and repair, toxicogenomics, and epigenetics; 3) determine how emerging technologies can lead to a better understanding of environmentally-induced genetic disease; 4) have these data serve as a foundation for human risk assessment for disease and disease prevention; and 5) aid in the support of knowledge-based regulation to protect public health and the environment. This is a meeting not to be missed. For additional information, visit the EMGS 2014 Annual Meeting website.

September 21–23, 2014 Seventh RTP Rodent Pathology Course

On behalf of the Research Triangle Park (RTP) area veterinary pathology community, we are pleased to announce the Seventh RTP Rodent Pathology Course, focusing on Endocrine Pathology, to be held at the Embassy Suites Raleigh-Durham Airport/Brier Creek (Address: 8001 Arco Corporate Drive, Raleigh, NC 27617). Our first six courses, on reproductive pathology, neuropathology, cardiopulmonary pathology, immunopathology, hepatobiliary pathology, and urinary pathology respectively, were overwhelming successes.

The course is designed to provide valuable information about current topics and techniques in rodent pathology and toxicology to investigative and diagnostic pathologists, trainees, as well as other involved and interested colleagues in the scientific community. The sessions are didactic and cover basic and advanced techniques in handling and interpreting tissues, special techniques for diagnostics and a review of diseases of the rodent Endocrine system. The program will feature experts, many from RTP, presenting on various contemporary subjects in pathology of the endocrine system featuring over 20 presentations covering state-of-the-art rodent endocrine system pathology and research as well as an interactive case presentation workshop.

Keynote Presentation: “Endocrine Pathology of Calcium Regulating Hormones: From Metabolism to Bone Metastasis”
Thomas J. Rosol, DVM, PhD, DACVP
Professor of Veterinary Biosciences
Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine

The course is being managed by the North Carolina State University, College of Veterinary Medicine, Office of Continuing Education and Outreach. The contact person at the NCSU CVM Office of Continuing Education and Outreach is Dane Johnston. Dane can be reached by phone at 919-513-6366, by fax at 919-513-6689, or by email.
