6th Annual National Conference of Neuropathology Society of India

Virtual Conference

Welcome message

On behalf of the Neuropathology Society of India, it gives us great pleasure to welcome you to the 6th annual meeting of the society to be hosted by Christian Medical College, Vellore on February 24th and 25th, 2023, which will be preceded by a half-day virtual workshop on Fluorescence in situ hybridization on February 23rd, 2023. The meeting will be held on a virtual platform. The highlights of the conference include several case-based slide sessions covering nerve and muscle pathology, epilepsy associated pathology, perinatal neuropathology, sellar lesions and tumors that pose a challenge with the WHO CNS5 classification. Experts in the field will share their experience covering a wide array of topics in non-neoplastic and neoplastic neuropathology. The COVID pandemic has opened up new avenues to enhance our learning experience. This virtual meeting thus aims to provide an opportunity to listen to a gallery of international and national experts in the field of Neuropathology from the safety and comfort of our own workplaces. The programme has been designed to address the needs of postgraduate residents, junior and senior faculty involved in diagnosis and research in Neuropathology. We encourage you to participate in this meeting and share your work in various aspects of Neuropathology and Neurosciences through the poster and free paper sessions.

Best Wishes,
