New STP Molecular Pathology Special Interest Group
The Society of Toxicologic Pathology is pleased to announce the establishment of the Molecular Pathology Special Interest Group (MP-SIG). The Molecular Pathology SIG will contribute to the STP strategic goals in several ways and aims to promote awareness, continued education, and scientific outreach to practicing scientists, professional societies, and regulatory bodies by facilitating molecular pathology best practices manuscripts and continuing education courses. By bringing together subject matter experts in this subspecialty across industry, government and academia, the MP-SIG will identify and promote best practices in the application of molecular pathology science and technology that are representative of its application across sectors.
As part of our main goals, the MP-SIG will evolve our understanding of the best practices in this field, collaborate with allied committees within the STP and related societies to publish consensus documents on the related topics as platform guidance for research methods aimed at increased quality and reproducibility of science. This SIG aims to collaborate closely with the STP “Digital Pathology” SIG and the ESTP “Pathology 2.0” SIG, and other allied groups, including representatives of public databases containing tissue-section-based data such as the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) initiative.
At this time, we invite all interested members to join the newly formed Molecular Pathology SIG.
Thank you in advance for your support and participation in the STP!
