25th European Congress of Pathology (ECP 2013)

31st August to 4th September 2013, Lisbon, Portugal

The motto of the ECP 2013: Pathology: A gate to the future.

It is symbolically represented by the Tower of Belém. The icon of the ECP 2013 is a monument close to the Congress Centre that commemorates the voyage towards the unknown of the Portuguese navigators.

Pathology, in addition to its traditional clinical problem solving role, is entering uncharted waters – this notion is reflected in the scientific programme that has been prepared mainly by the ESP Working Groups.

The European Society of Pathology and the Portuguese Society of Pathology / Portuguese Division of the International Academy of Pathology warmly invite you to join the meeting in Lisbon and to be part of the largest gathering of pathologists in Europe in 2013.

Detailed information about the ECP can be found here.
