The Academy has received 3,266 abstracts, with top research destined for platform and poster sessions. Dr. Stanley Hamilton of MD Anderson Cancer Center will deliver the Maude Abbott Lecture on “The Pathologist and Individualized Cancer Therapy,” and Dr. H. Gilbert Welch of The Dartmouth Institute will discuss “Overdiagnosis and Cancer Screening: Challenges Posed by Birds, Rabbits and Turtles” for the Timely Topics lecture. The Generation U party is a celebration of our profession and USCAP’s expression of appreciation for attending the meeting.

Translocation Analysis in Tissue Sections
"FISH is a powerful method for detecting cytogenetic aberrations in FFPE samples. [...] On average, it took approximately 9 min to complete the analysis of a single sample. Constant manual interaction was not required during this time, which included the digital archival of the scanned area of the slide as well. Inspection of every single grid unit captured for analysis was not required. [...] In conclusion, we report a reliable and fast automated FISH analysis procedure for the detection of translocations in tissue sections."
