April 2017 Issue of The Pathologist

Welcome to our April issue. Take our Case of the Month challenge with a uterine tumor resected from a 55-year-old woman, and check your answer from last month! Upfronts address novel types of biomarkers for cancer, organ transplant and mental illness. Emyr Benbow’s In My View calls for pathologists to involve themselves in integrated medical education – an excellent lead-in to our Feature on medical education, which deals with the transition from knowledge-based to competency-based training and introduces several experts who share their experiences, opinions, and top tips for teachers. Our In Practice section focuses on the importance of multi-omic studies for a complete picture of disease. In NextGen, we look at the value of previously dismissed “junk” genetic elements like long non-coding RNA SAMMSON, and Profession calls for greater reproducibility in scientific literature. We Sit Down With Ron Heeren, Director of the Maastricht MultiModal Molecular Imaging Institute.
