July 2017 Issue of The Pathologist

Our July 2017 issue explores the issues and opportunities posed by biobanking – and two experts explain why pathology is poised to play a key role as tissue archivists and curators. We also look at an alternative to robotic microscopy, the technique of “slide-free histology”, the current state of CRISPR/Cas gene editing, and a new test for predicting which preterm infants are at highest risk of bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Finally, we sit down with Eleftherios Diamandis, a cancer biomarker guru and the discoverer of kallikreins.
