Dear colleagues and friends,

It is again our great pleasure to announce the anniversary 10th Bryan Warren School Pathology that will be held in Sarajevo on November 4-5, 2016 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 topics of the School will be gastrointestinal and breast 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 Raymond McMahon (Manchester Royal Infirmary, Manchester, UK) and Professor Sarah E Pinder (King’s College London, UK).

The School objectives remain the same as all previous years: to give a brief overview of the most important topics in gastrointestinal and breast pathology and to cover the practical issues, particularly those relevant for 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!
