February 2024 Issue of The Pathologist

In January/February’s issue of The Pathologist, things are heating up in the world of tropical diseases. Two experts tell us how they are trying to mitigate the surge in the spread of two such infections – Lassa fever and dengue fever – due to rising temperatures.
Plus much more: the connection between nerves and tumor growth, a digital lab case study from New Zealand, pathology education on TikTok, change management advice from Giovanni Lujan, and an interview with one of the most popular pathologists on social media: Kamran Mirza.
