Dear colleagues and friends,

It is again our great pleasure to announce the 9th Bryan Warren School Pathology that will be held in Sarajevo on November 6-7, 2015 organized jointly by the Department of Pathology, Clinical Centre of the University of Sarajevo and the British Division of the International Academy of Pathology (BDIAP).

The main topic of the School will be liver and pancreatic pathology, both of which represent enormously challenging and important fields in diagnostic pathology. The main lecturers will be two distinguished and well-experienced histopathologists: Professor Stefan Hübscher (Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, Birmingham, UK) and Professor Fiona Campbell (Royal Liverpool University Hospital, Liverpool, UK).

The School objectives are to give a brief overview of the most important topics in pancreatic and liver pathology and to cover the practical issues, particularly those relevant to young specialists and residents in pathology as well as for clinicians.

We sincerely hope that the School again shall meet your expectations, and it will certainly depend on your active participation.

We look forward to meeting you in Sarajevo!
