Neuropathology is the study of diseases of the nervous system, and typically includes the laboratory analysis of tissue samples for personalized diagnosis or forensic investigations. Neuropathologists are the physicians/scientists who provide cellular and molecular diagnoses and conduct research in this field; common areas of study are brain tumors, Alzheimer disease, stroke, muscular dystrophies, infections, and brain development. Our association is the AANP and our official journal is the Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology ..... Read More
Message from our President
On behalf of our membership, I welcome you to the website of the American Association of Neuropathologists.
We have entered the era of personalized medicine and precision diagnostics, and our field is evolving rapidly. At the 2016 meeting of the AANP, we heard about the new classification of brain tumors from the World Health Organization, the new understanding of the effects of trauma on the brain, and the newest molecular classifications of neurodegenerative diseases. The presentations from our named lectures are posted under Meetings for your information.
We’ve just begun our planning for the 2017 meeting in Orange County, CA, to be held June 8-11. We’ll start with a special course on Thursday, have our traditional scientific sessions and named lectures on Friday and Saturday, review the diagnostic slide session cases on Saturday evening, and finish up with the Presidential Symposium on Sunday.
I look forward to seeing you at the meeting in Orange County, June 8-11, 2017.
Arie Perry, M.D.
