A weekend in Paris talking all things pathology...

A weekend in Paris talking all things pathology...

2 May 2018

Melanoma Institute Australia’s Conjoint Medical Director Professor Richard Scolyer has been sharing his expertise in Paris where he was a co-director of an international course on melanoma pathology at Institut Curie, one of the leading medical biological and biophysical research centres in the world.

The course included a series of informative lectures and interactive sessions examining the most difficult diagnostic problems encountered by practicing pathologists in the areas of cutaneous and ocular melanoma. Discussions covered the general approach to atypical lesions, dysplastic and other cutaneous melanocytic nevi as well as acral, uveal and ocular melanomas, melanoma staging and immune checkpoint pathways.

What a productive way to spend a weekend in Paris! Professor Scolyer is pictured aboveoutside Notre Dame with Professor Boris Bastian from the University of California, San Francisco and ex-president of The Society for Melanoma Research, and Dr Arnaud de la Fouchardière from Lyon, France.

And here, outside the Pantheon, Professor Scolyer is with fellow co-director of the international course Professor Klaus Busam, head of Dermatopathology at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.
