The roundtable meets on a regular basis to discuss issues that directly impact our discipline, so that a unified response may be developed. Dr. Remick assumed his duties as moderator in July, 2014 as a representative of the American Society for Investigative Pathology
  • Dr. Remick moderated a session at the 2014 Association of Pathology Chairs Meeting “Academic Pathology 2020: Advancing Research Opportunities,” in Boston, MA; July 8-11, 2014

  • Effective July 1, 2014, Dr. Maria Panchenko will be the new course co-director for our course PA710 “Principles of Applied and Basic Pathology”. The course was originally created by Deborah Stearns-Kurosawa who will be stepping down. I will remain the new course co-director.
    This is a graduate level course which introduces basic concepts of pathology, including some essential histology. Additionally, all graduate students are required to attend our research seminars and prepare a written synopsis of 4 seminars. This allows the students to have their writing formally evaluated. Another major component of the course is to expose all of the new graduate students to the range of research conducted within the Department so that they may select an appropriate lab to do their thesis.  Please join me in welcoming Dr. Panchenko as the new course co-director, and thanking Dr. Stearns-Kurosawa for her efforts to launch and mentor a new course.
