President’s Welcome

On behalf of the IAP Australasian Division executive committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to join us in the spectacular new International Convention Centre, Sydney from 2 – 4 June, 2017 for the 41st Annual Scientific Meeting of the Australian Division of the IAP. As in previous years, the conference will provide an extensive program including international keynote speakers, national Richardspeakers and topical companion club sessions.

From an international perspective, we have been fortunate enough to secure three impressive speakers: Dr Jason Hornick from Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts, USA, Dr Marisa Nucci from the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts, USA and Dr Alexander Laxar from The University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center, USA. Their combined knowledge spans Surgical and Soft Tissue Pathology, Gynaecological Pathology, Molecular Pathology and Dermatopathology and they will be joined by a range of local speakers who share their knowledge and expertise on a diverse range of anatomical pathology related topics.

Sydney is one of the world's most vibrant and beautiful destinations and the ICC Sydney, which is opening in December, will be the Asia Pacific's premier integrated convention, exhibition and entertainment precinct. It is set amongst restaurants, retail and a vibrant public domain on Darling Harbour yet only a moment's walk to Australia's largest CBD and surrounding cultural quarters.

We’re really looking forward to welcoming you to our wonderful city in 2017 and sharing our exciting program with you

Professor Richard Scolyer
