October 2019 Issue of The Pathologist

In this month’s issue, we speak to three experts about the importance of biobanking and its place in modern medicine. Although the preservation and storage of biomaterial is often overlooked, biobanking is essential to the future of pathology – and we discover how patients, practitioners, and the public can interact with biobanks to maximize their value. In addition, learn how advanced liquid biopsy techniques can help with treatment selection and resistance detection, discover the lessons that biomedical scientist Jeanie Martin MBE has learned throughout her long career in the lab, and find out how Kristen Adams thinks we should tackle the shortage of forensic pathologists. We also sit down with Bennet Omalu, President and Medical Director of Bennet Omalu Pathology, Stockton, USA.
