This unique panel event will delve into unchartered territory for most pathologists; their crucial role in discovering new drug targets and therapeutics working within, or in collaboration with, industry.

As part of this year's International Pathology Day celebrations, The Royal College of Pathologists in collaboration with The Pathologist are excited to deliver another IPD Roundtable. This fascinating discussion will be chaired by Professor Jo Martin, President of the Royal College of Pathologists and delivered by pathologists who took the less trodden career route to work on some ground breaking discoveries and life-changing projects.
