Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Convention CentreAmsterdam, NETHERLANDS Visit the Venue to read more
The European Society of Pathology would like to invite you to Amsterdam, The Netherlands, for the 29th European Congress of Pathology (ECP 2017). It will be held from 2 to 6 September 2017 at the Amsterdam RAI. Join us for an energetic congress that will update you on all aspects of diagnostic and molecular pathology.
The motto of the congress – Pathology for Patient Care – will highlight the added value of the pathology science and discipline in providing care and improving health outcomes for patients and population.
The scientific programme will focus on the central role of pathology and its current clinical applications, translational research, near-future innovations and the longer perspectives of paradigm shifts (integrated ‘omics’ care). Highthroughput assays, bioinformatics and precision diagnostics will pervade the programme more than ever.
ECP 2017 will also provide a unique occasion for updating our knowledge in pathology through up-to-date teaching courses highlighting news and views in diagnostic pathology.
Moreover, the ECP 2017 will provide a platform for mingle & meet, between pathologists and scientists alike, from all over the world.
We look forward to welcoming you and spending a great time in Amsterdam.
Prof. Pierre Bedossa
President of the European Society of Pathology
Prof. Folkert van Kemenade
Chair of the Local Organising Committee of ECP 2017
