Virtual Continuing Education Symposium 3:  Carcinogenesis

Tuesday 2nd - Thursday 11th March 2021

13.00 – 16.30 (GMT+0/UCT+0) 

CES 3 will be held over two weeks - on the afternoons of Tuesday 2nd, Wednesday 3rd, Thursday 4th, Tuesday 9th, Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th March 2021, from 13.00 – 16.30 (GMT+0/UCT+0) each day.

Registration for this symposium will open in October 2020 with numbers limited to a maximum of 50 – registration will close at midnight on 2nd February 2021!

As you are aware the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has had repercussions for all events in relation to regional and international travel and the BSTP is no different, so CES 3:  Carcinogenesis will be held via ZOOM.

If you registered and paid to attend this meeting in 2020 and have not received a refund or credit note, please contact the BSTP Secretariat.  Refunds via the online registration process are unable to be processed.

Approved by the Royal Society of Biology for the purposes of CPD, this event may be counted as approximately 54 credits

Approximately 17.5 hours of educational activity will be recorded on Attendance Certificates  

Virtual Continuing Education Symposium 4:  Respiratory System

6th – 15th July 2021

13.00 – 16.30 (GMT+1/UCT+1)

Registration for this symposium will open in December 2020/January 2021 with numbers limited to a maximum of 50 – registration will close at midnight on 8th June 2021!

Continuing Education Symposium 4 will be held on the afternoons of Tuesday 6th, Wednesday 7th, Thursday 8th, Tuesday 13th, Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th July 2021, from 13.00 – 16.30 (GMT+1/UCT+1) each day.

As you are aware the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has had repercussions for all events in relation to regional and international and the BSTP is no different, so CES 4:  Respiratory System will be held via ZOOM.  If restrictions continue to be in place for the foreseeable future, this situation may also have an effect on future CES but hopefully there may be a clearer understanding of the ‘new normal’ in 2121.

Approved by the Royal Society of Biology for the purposes of CPD, this event may be counted as approximately 54 credits

Approximately 17.5 hours of educational activity will be recorded on Attendance Certificates 

The 35th Annual Scientific Meeting of the BSTP

Pathology of Humanised Mouse Models

Thursday 11th and Friday 12th November 2021

Date and venue to be confirmed

Immunodeficient mice reconstituted with a human immune system are increasingly used for modelling the human immune compartment in numerous preclinical applications, such as adoptive cell therapy and immuno-oncology studies. With the advent of new Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products, humanised mice are  a key component of efficacy and safety assessment in preclinical programmes, including GLP studies. However, limited information is available concerning the morphological aspects of human cell engraftment and the spectrum of spontaneous and experimentally induced histopathological lesions occurring in these mice.

Working with the Pathological Society of Great Britain and Ireland the meeting will cover the main features of the different humanised mouse platforms; their experimental applications in drug development, oncology and gene and cell therapies; specific safety and regulatory considerations; and future promise and remaining challenges. A short session will be also devoted to chimeric mice with humanised livers, as tools for the study of human drug metabolism and toxicity.  The aim is also to have parallel sessions covering ‘mouse pathology’ and ‘humanised mice in preclinical studies: context and regulatory aspects’.

The first day of the meeting will include the Annual General Meeting of the BSTP.

Registration will open in March/April 2020, to reserve a place or if you would like further information about this meeting please contact the BSTP Secretariat – bstpoffice@aol.com
