7th ESTP International Expert Workshop, Cologne, Germany, September 20 – 21, 2019
Towards Regulatory Acceptance of Digital Toxicologic Pathology

The Face-to-Face Expert Discussion of our current workshop "Towards Regulatory Acceptance of Digital Toxicologic Pathology" will take place on September 20-21st, 2019 in Cologne, Germany right after the Annual ESTP meeting and at the meeting venue from Friday noon until Saturday 1:00pm.

The workshop comprises 20+ members representing the diversity of our profession, including participants from international regulatory agencies.

Presentations will cover extensive literature review on this topic, definition of key concepts, use of digital imaging in other disciplines and clinical trials, management of image workflow, validation/qualification requirements, individual contributor training through perspectives and lessons learnt from academy, industry and regulatory bodies.

There will be Q&A sessions to allow the audience to contribute actively, and some sessions of expert discussion.

The list of experts and detailed program will be sent out approximately 4 weeks prior to the event.

The achievements of the workshop will be summarized by the organizing team and experts, and will be further refined at follow-up workshop teleconferences, with the aim to submit an internationally endorsed publication to Toxicologic Pathology within the next half year or so.

We would like to invite interested toxicologic pathologists and scientists from related disciplines to join the limited audience (50 persons) and actively contribute to the discussions.

Online registration for interested toxicologists and toxicologic pathologists will be possible until September 01, 2019. Due to the limited places available, registrations will be accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis.

The registration fee of 140.00 € includes lunch and coffee breaks on both days.
