Established in 1999, the purpose of the International Academy of Toxicologic Pathology (IATP) is to recognize and accredit highly accomplished toxicologic pathologists to ensure the competence and experience of professional practitioners whose work affect the public welfare thought the world. A peer review process, a time-honored mechanism available to scientist to evaluate one another, accomplishes this.
Fellows of IATP are judged to be scientists who have achieved expert status in the practice of toxicologic pathology through scientific leadership and innovation which benefits society and their profession. Accreditation in IATP is based on formal training in pathology, demonstrated achievement, proven ability, continuing practice and expertise.
Agencies, universities and other organizations regularly seek out IATP Fellows to serve as guest lectures, panel experts, and consultants.
For questions or comments, please contact us at IATP Executive Office (email@example.com) or call 856-223-9444.
UPCOMING IATP MEETINGS & COURSES
IATP Annual Business Meeting
The IATP Annual Business Meeting will be held on June 18th from 6:30-7:30 PM at
The Doubletree Hotel, Portland, OR.
Practical Application of MRI Histology in Toxicologic Pathology
Sponsored by the International Academy of Toxicologic Pathology
and The Society of Toxicologic Pathology
Wednesday, June 19, 2013
12:00 Noon - 1:30 PM
Complimentary Session, Advance Registration Required*
Isotropic 3-D in vivo MRI images of rats and mice as well as images of formalin-fixed whole tissue
specimens are possible with compact scanners that can now be safely used in an animal room, a
histology laboratory, or a pathologist�s office. Compact MRI in vivo imaging provides an opportunity
for longitudinal evaluation of tissue changes and tumor development in experimental animal models.
Imaging of whole fixed tissue samples permits a thorough examination of multiple digital slices with
subsequent volumetric measurement of 3-dimensional structures while leaving the specimen intact for
subsequent conventional H&E histology. This session will provide examples of major organ system pathologies
encountered in rodent toxicity and carcinogenicity studies with emphasis on how MRI imaging technology can
serve as an important adjunct to conventional pathology evaluation. The objective will be to use rodent
animal models & show live animal images followed by images of the fixed specimens from the same animal
model and comparison with conventional H&E-stained sections. Session is limited to the first 75 32nd
Annual Symposium attendees who preregister. Lunch will be provided.
Society of Toxicologic Pathology 32nd Annual Symposium "Toxicologic Pathology of the Digestive Tract
and Pancreas" is the theme of the Society of Toxicologic Pathology (STP) 32nd Annual Symposium to be held
June 16�20, 2013, in Portland, Oregon.

STP 32nd Annual Symposium website.
CNS Evaluation in Rodent Toxicity Studies
Sponsored by the International Academy of Toxicologic Pathology, International Federation of Societies of
Toxicologic Pathologists, Charles River, Experimental Pathology Laboratories and Integrated Laboratory Systems
September 11, 2013
1:00 PM � 5:00 PM
A new sampling procedure for evaluation of the rodent central nervous system (CNS) in rodent toxicity
and carcinogenicity studies has been adopted by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) and Contract
Research Organizations (CROs). This sampling procedure includes 7 transverse sections of brain
and 3 levels of spinal cord. The sampling is designed to include major brain structures with
