The aim of the organisers is to provide an up-to-date scientific program covering all major areas of diagnostic, translational, molecular and investigative pathology. Special emphasis will be put on recent developments in pathology, particularly in the applications of technologies linked to molecular understanding, and strengthening of the role of continuing close clinico-pathological cooperation for patient benefit. The core programme, prepared with a strong input from the IAP Working Groups and Affiliated Societies will encompass the following topics:

A wide range of clinically orientated and scientific sessions, virtual and in-person, will be offered, comprising Keynote Lectures, Slide Seminars, Short Courses, Symposia, Video-microscopy and Special Sessions, as well as Oral Free Paper and Poster Sessions.

The focus is on active participation, giving attendees opportunities to present and participate in important discussions on the major current and future issues and challenges across the globe.

This structure will allow delegates to take “deep dives” into the latest developments and new research in these specific areas. These parallel streams will be interspersed with joint-stream and plenary sessions where delegates come together to help advance the profession in Australia and beyond.

The theme of IAP 2022 is “Bridge to a Cure”. Discover Australia and discover the innovation that lies where practical problems meet leading scientific developments.  IAP 2022 will focus on the application of theory and the discovery that comes when world-class minds are focused on all specialties of pathology.  Our Congress Program and sessions reflect this emphasis on science and is designed to trigger collaboration, innovation and discovery from a diverse group of participants.
