Continuing in the tradition of pediatric pathology conferences in the Aspen area since 1970, the 2016 lecture-based course is designed for general and pediatric pathologists, but will be of interest to pediatric surgeons and pediatricians who would like to advance their knowledge in various pediatric neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases. Handouts and PowerPoint presentations, including case discussions, will be posted on The University of Chicago website.

A microscope will be available to review with faculty interesting cases that participants may bring to the conference. In addition, an academic poster session consisting of current topics in pediatric pathology will be presented. Abstracts can be submitted by any participant to Aliya N.
