Nobel laureate Gerd Binnig endorses CASyM towards developing a Digital Systems Pathology approach

St Andrews 29 May, 2014

The importance of tissue is well understood within CASyM (click for more information) and it seemed an opportune time to gather a small cohort of experts to this years St Andrews conference on Digital Systems Pathology to share ideas and support the development of Systems Medicine as a useful clinical tool.

By integrating quantitative patholgy into the concept of Systems Medicine and CASyM we wish to influence Europe and the wider clinical community, leading to an earlier uptake and use of this technology in clinic. To continue this route, CASyM gathered experts from multiple disciplines including clinical pathology, bioimaging and molecular disgnostics to discuss state of the art, needs, challenges and opportunities of modern pathology.  Nobel laureate and founder of DEFINIENS, Dr. Gerd Binnig, gave the keynote lecture for this important event and endorses CASyM towards developing a novel  Digital Systems Pathology approach.

CASyM will use the output of this cross-disciplinary workshop to further feed the development of the roadmap for Systems Medicne.

A detailed workshop report is under preparation and will be posted soon on the webpage.
