Session Description: As a Society, we cannot escape the identity crisis we have confronted in the past - what is pathology and how do pathologists fit into the basic framework of biomedical science? This is an ongoing challenge that requires our members to educate others regarding the nature of the discipline of experimental pathology and how our research describes and investigates the pathology, pathogenesis, and pathophysiology of specific diseases at the molecular, cellular, organ, and organismal level. Overcoming this identity crisis requires effort on the part of each ASIP member and our success will be evident as we continue to attract bright and enthusiastic young investigators into the diverse field of experimental pathobiology.

The American Society for Investigative Pathology presents I Am An ASIP Member and This Is My Science a dynamic and inspiring session featuring ASIP Scientists on the Cutting Edge of Discovery briefly, present their research, accomplishments, career journeys, and service to ASIP. This session highlights the diversity among our membership, and provides trainees, young scientists, pathologists, and the members of the larger scientific community the opportunity to become inspired by Trailblazers in the field of investigative pathology.
