The Annual General Meeting of the Devon and Cornwall branch followed by a lecture by Dr Paul Laurance-Young

Most people will, at some time or other, have some part of their anatomy cut off them. Hopefully by a medical professional. Large or small, that piece of you will very often go for analysis to determine if there was anything wrong with it (apparently randomly resecting people for no good reason is frowned upon in the legal profession). 

That is where pathology comes in; not just the home of the dead but a ballet of cutting edge tools, complex diagnostics and lots and lots of interesting smelling chemicals. Follow the journey from when a piece of tissue arrives in the lab until it leaves as a diagnosis for the GP in tray, with everything in between; A light-hearted romp through a hospital's hottest laboratory where anything can happen.

This lecture will be delivered by Dr Paul Laurance-Young, University of Plymouth, and will follow the AGM of the Devon and Cornwall branch. 


All are welcome to attend the AGM, but only Devon and Cornwall branch members will be able to vote. The AGM is a chance for members and non-members to come together to talk to the committee and hear about updates in their activities and finances, and to plan for the year ahead. You can download an agenda in advance of the day.


This event will be held online on Zoom, and in-person at: J Craigie LT, University of Plymouth PL4 8AA. 

Please note: there is limited availability for in-person attendance.
