Each year, thousands of pathologists assemble in person or remotely to participate in the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathologists Annual Meeting. Likewise, each year, the Department of Pathology at the University of Michigan is very well represented!  This year, our faculty and trainees will be giving presentations, teaching courses, moderating panel discussions, participating as panelists, and presenting their research in poster sessions, for a total of 69 activities! The meeting will commence on March 19th with a USCAP Honors Ceremony, led by our own Dr. Laura Lamps, president of the USCAP, and conclude on March 24th.

Below is a list of platform presentations being given by our faculty.  For a complete list of all types of presentations being given by our faculty and trainees, click here.  The times listed below are Eastern Time zone.
