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.

Message from Our President

It is truly an honor for me to serve as your President of the American Association of Neuropathologists for 2021-2022. In these peculiar COVID-19 times, where everyone is forced to become an expert in WebEx, ZOOM, and other web-based platforms, it was very inspiring to see that our Association was able to have a hybrid meeting with some of us meeting friends and colleagues in-person. I would like to thank Dr. Ross Reichard, the Education Committee, and the AOE team for the extraordinary effort for organizing, in fact, two meetings at the same time. The organization of our 2021 Annual meeting showed us that our Association is strong, adaptable and has an innovative attitude towards the future.

The AANP is strong because of all of its members. I urge you to remain or become involved in our Association. We must continue to attract young neuropathologists and trainees for their participation in our Association and to advance prominence on multimedia platforms as an engaging and educational instrument. Our committees are vital for the Association and the members and the chairs are actively creating new initiatives and involvement of more members.

With the release of the WHO Blue Books and substantial changes in CNS and pituitary tumor classification, our commitment to educate our members and colleagues from related disciplines is a priority for this upcoming year. We hope the Association and its membership can facilitate the implementation of these changes with educational and specialized forums.
Thank you for your support and I hope to see everyone in person at the 98th Annual AANP Meeting in Bonita Springs, FL (June 9-12, 2022).
M. Beatriz S. Lopes, MD, PhD
AANP President
