100th Anniversary Symposium for the Norwegian Society of Pathology

The Norwegian Society of Pathology celebrated the first 100 years with a symposium on Updates and Future of Pathology. The event was supported by CCBIO and also celebrated with a history book covering the Society and its activities through 1923-2023.

The book (in Norwegian, 450 pages) was edited by CCBIO's Director Lars A. Akslen together with G. Cecilie Alfsen, and Ying Chen. It contains a brief history of the pathology field in Norway, an overview of the society, and presentations of hospital units, university departments and private labs as well as national registry functions.

Akslen was chair of the committee for the anniversary symposium which took place at the eminent Grand Hotel in Oslo November 17-18, 2023, with participation from the authorities, international and national pathology experts, industry representatives and patient organisations. See the program here
