Chairman's Address

It is our pleasure to invite you to the XVI meeting for the Society for Ultrastructural Pathology to be held on August 6-10, 2012 in the historical town of Regensburg, Germany.

The Society was formed in 1986 with the mission to support and promote the application of electron microscopy in pathologic diagnosis and research of human diseases. Over the years the scope of biennial meetings expanded and includes immunochemistry, molecular and cellular biology; now in the time of rapid increase of information and paradigm change in the field of health care we are facing new challenges.

The conference addresses practicing surgical pathologists, trainees, and other scientists involved in pathological diagnosis and research. The scientific program of the Ultrapath XVI will cover the traditional significant areas of pathology and three dedicated sessions:

  • Ciliopathy derived human diseases
  • EM and transplantology
  • EM in pathological basic research.

We encourage you to submit abstracts for platform or poster presentations, for detailed information please visit the new conference website:

We warmly welcome you all here in the Bavarian city of Regensburg located by the Danube River. The exciting ancient town, rich in architectural traces of Roman legions, German kings, and wealthy merchants was recently honoured by the UNESCO World Heritage. Organized tours will bring you in touch with the lovely surrounding countryside and culture of South Germany, while tasty local beer will help you in networking with other participants.
