Formed in 1986, the Society's mission is 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 bienial conference addresses practicing surgical pathologists, trainees, and other scientists involved in pathological diagnosis and research. The scientific programs cover both the traditional significant areas of pathology and selected dedicated areas.
The most recent conference was held in July 2016, in Lisbon, Portugal.
