Virtual resources

Developed through international collaborations and UK partnerships aimed at supporting the continued professional development of pathologists and scientist worldwide. Featuring a variety of topics across a number of specialties.

International Pathology Day (IPD) 2021

Replay most talks, lunchtime activities and the roundtable discussion from the virtual event, themed digital pathology and aspects of AI - a worlds-eye view, that the College hosted on the 10 November, in association with Sponsor Sonic Healthcare UK and partner, the British Society for Haematology (BSH).

The lancet commission on diagnostics

This talk discusses the findings of The Lancet Commission on Diagnostics. This major work of a global multidisciplinary team of twenty-five commissioners from sixteen countries were commissioned to examine the shared challenges of pathology and laboratory medicine (PALM) and digital imaging (DI) services.

Practicing ‘deep medicine’ in ‘smart hospitals,

Starting at the title of this talk Dr Tbakhi, gets us in deep in thought, about how ways of working and the environment in which a healthcare professional will operate in years to come is likely to be.

AI for Pathology

Professor Nasir Rajpoot Professor of Computational Pathology at the Computer Science department of the University of Warwick presents the work of his PHD students, which is an intriguing exploration, into how with an increasing number of NHS pathology labs being digitised in the UK, there is an explosion in the amount of pathology image data with linked clinical outcomes.

The roundtable "Can digital pathology break down international borders?"

The roundtable panel discuss the need to leverage the power of digital pathology to establish practical solutions that will positively impact global health for everyone.

One-episode podcast style interview with Associate Professor Clare Verrill and guest Dr Yuchun Ding, founder of X-WOW

Associate Professor Clare Verrill and guest Dr Yuchun Ding, founder of X-WOW, discuss how X-WOW began its mission, the importance of education and raising public awareness about the essential role of pathology in healthcare services.

Demonstration of the College’s upcoming Pathology Portal

Professor Jo Martin shows how technology will be used to enhance learning and how the platform aims to incorporate the ability to host and view whole slide imaging (WSI) over the world wide web (virtual microscopy) to enable pathology tissue samples to be annotated and viewed as part of learning sets, mapped to the relevant curricula of the College, and hosted and maintained within the system.

The Theory of Genomic Technologies

In May and June we ran a series of six lectures, for and on behalf of The National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria (NPMCN) in association with Kings College London. Colleagues from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) also brought their expertise to the delivery of some lectures.

End point PCR

The lecture covers the principles of polymerase chain (PCR) reaction, with a particular focus on end-point PCR, its advantages and disadvantage, as well as its applications in diagnostic laboratories.

Integrated diagnostic reporting in Haematological Malignancies

The lecture covers some of the guidance and its translation into an effective Haematological Malignancy Diagnostic Service for South East England with a catchment population of approximately 6-7 million.

Sanger Sequencing

The lecture covers the history of Sanger sequencing, including the development and improvements of the chemistry and technology.

Conventional Karyotyping For CML

The lecture covers the basics of the BCR/ABL1 rearrangement, its variants and methods of detection, and the groups of additional chromosome abnormalities that are detected by karyotyping with their risk association.

NGS Workflow

Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) is a group of technologies that can sequence millions of small nucleic acid fragments simultaneously (massively parallel sequencing). The lecture explores how this is achieved.

Real-time PCR (qPCR)

The lecture will shed light on the technical aspects of real-time PCR from the basics of its primers and probes design up to the clinical applications in various disciplines ranging from molecular microbiology to molecular pathology and genetics.
