Mark Your Calendar: November 3-7

The Annual Meeting will begin with pre-meeting workshops (available at an additional fee) on Saturday, November 3 from 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.  The Veterinary Student Poster Session and Opening Reception will begin at 7:30 p.m.  The meeting will end at 12:00 noon on Wednesday, November 7.  Post-meeting workshops (for an additional fee) will be available from 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon.

A preliminary program for the Annual Meeting is here.  

Plan to attend the Plenary Session on Monday morning, November 5.  Review the line-up below.

Recent advances in computer-modeling, bioprinting, and tissue engineering have led to the creation of synthetic tissues and organs for transplantation, as well as new diagnostic and drug development assays such as organ-on-a-chip technologies. Just how closely do synthetic tissues match their real counterparts? What potential role could veterinary pathologists play in development and evaluation of synthetic tissue models? Global leaders in the field of tissue bioengineering will share successes, challenges, and future opportunities in this burgeoning research field.
