I discuss issues pertaining to the practice of neuropathology -- including nervous system tumors, neuroanatomy, neurodegenerative disease, muscle and nerve disorders, ophthalmologic pathology, neuro trivia, neuropathology gossip, job listings and anything else that might be of interest to a blue-collar neuropathologist.

Annual AANP meeting is two months away
The Charleston Place Hotel in Charleston, South Carolina
Neuropathologists across the country are starting to make plans to attend the 89th Annual Meeting of the American Association of Neuropathologists, which will be held June 20-23, 2013 in Charleston, SC at the
Charleston Place Hotel. The meeting with commence on Thursday the 20th with two half-day courses. There will be a morning course directed by Dr. Charles L. White entitled Practical Issues and Challenging Diagnoses in Forensic Neuropathology. The afternoon course is called Update in Frontotemporal Lobar Degenerations and is directed by Dr. Elizabeth J. Cochran. Other highlights later in the weekend include the return of Dr. Stanley Prusiner, Nobel laureate, who will talk about prion disease. (Dr. Prusiner last spoke to the AANP in 2006, when the meeting was paired with the International Society of Neuropathogy conference in San Francisco.) The inimitable Dr. Harry Vinters will speak on vascular diseases of the CNS. Looks like another great line-up of topics and speakers!
