Yoshinao Oda, M.D., Ph.D.
President of the 109th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society of Pathology
Professor of the Department of Anatomic Pathology, Kyushu University
It is a great honor for me to be the president of the 109th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society of Pathology (JSP), which will be held at Fukuoka International Congress Center and Fukuoka Sunpalace Hotel & Hall from April 16 to 18, 2020. The Annual Meeting of the JSP is coming back to Fukuoka for the first time in 17years. It was held by congress president, Dr. Masazumi Tsuneyoshi at Kyushu University in 2003. Dr. Masazumi Tsuneyoshi has been a great mentor to me.
The fundamental objective of JSP defines to popularize and promote the research concerning the scientific principle of pathology and its application, while there has been great progress in genomic medicine and AI in all medical fields. Therefore, the main theme of the current meeting is proposed as “Next generation pathology-integration of wisdom and its transfer for the world”. This meeting aims to activate the scientific research of young pathologists and to promote internationalization of all JSP members.
The following detailed aims are considered in this meeting.
1. Development of human resources for junior pathologists and investigators
2. Presentation of their excellent research work by middle class investigators
3. Education of new diagnostic technology and companion diagnostics for pathologists
4. Encouragement of research minds in next generation pathologists by the unification of basic research and practical pathological diagnostics
5. Promotion of internationalization for all members of JSP
6. Encouragement of the participation of medical students
Japan Pathology Award lectures will be given in 2020 by Dr. Mitsuyasu Kato at the University of Tsukuba, Dr. Yuji Nishikawa at Asahikawa Medical University, and Dr. Ichiro Saito at Tsurumi University will give a special lecture on his pioneering work. Three special symposiums are planned: “Autopsy and cohort study” based on Hisayama study at Kyushu University, “Genomic medicine” for precision medicine, and “Utility of AI in pathology”.
Two famous pathologists from overseas will give special invited lectures in 2020. Dr. Albert Roessner from Magdeburg, Germany, Editor in Chief, Pathology Research and Practice will give a talk on “The Recent Developments in Molecular Pathology of Bone Tumors”, and Dr. Cristopher Fletcher from Boston, US, the president of United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology will talk about “The Evolution of Surgical Pathology”. As for international sessions, Asian Soft Tissue Tumor Symposium, Joint Symposium between European Society of Pathology and JSP, and Exchange Workshop between Chinese Society of Pathology and JSP, are planned.
I would encourage to apply in general topic sessions for young pathologists and investigators from foreign countries. JSP will donate travel grant for five excellent subjects. In addition, evening companion society meeting should provide diverse subspecialty topics and networking options. Therefore, don't miss this excellent opportunity to contribute to the scientific contents of this meeting and submit your abstracts no later than October 23rd, 2019.
This Meeting will be held in the April of 2020, just three months ahead The Olympic Games at Tokyo in 2020. Fukuoka has a best season and you can taste delicious Japanese cuisine during this meeting. I hope many attendees will participate fully and greatly enjoy the three days of the 109th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society of Pathology.
