Uro-oncological pathology tutorial: a 3-day “meet the expert”.


Uro-oncological pathology tutorial: a 3-day “meet the expert”.

24th – 26th November, 2016

This 2-and-half-day Tutorial aims to cover the main current issues in the pathology of human prostate and bladder cancers: Theoretical presentations will include normal macroscopy and microscopy, diagnostic criteria, prognosis evaluation, histological subtypes, diagnostic pitfalls, specimen handling and report. Practical clinicopathological cases will support discussion and ensure interactivity. The final sessions will focus on molecular pathology, translational research and perspectives for the future regarding molecular biomarkers, tumor classification, and the implications for clinical trial design. The course will be in English language and of interest for pathologists and other physicians or researchers involved in the field.

  • Yves Allory is professor of Pathology at Henri Mondor Hospital and University Paris Est (Créteil, France). He has a 15 year experience in Genito-Urinary Pathology, with a strong interest in research for bladder and prostate cancer biomarkers and classifications. He is member of the board of EAU Section of Urological Research (ESUR).
  • Ferran Algaba is the chief of Pathology Department of Fundació Puigvert and associated professor of Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona (Spain). He has 40 years of experience in genito-urinary pathology and is member of the WHO, UICC, ISUP and European societies of Pathology and Urology.
  • Francisco X. Real is group leader at the Epithelial Carcinogenesis Group, CNIO, and Professor of Cell Biology at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain). His group works on the molecular cell biology of pancreatic and bladder cancer combining cell culture, genetic mouse models,and patient studies. He is Associate Editor of the journal “Bladder Cancer”.
  • David Olmos is group leader at the Prostate Cancer Clinical Research Unit, CNIO, and is a co-Director of the CNIO Associated Clinical Unit at the Hospital Vírgen de la Victoria (Málaga, Spain). His group works does translational research and clinical trials in prostate cancer.
