Welcome Message from President

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to invite you to the 59th IAP-Thailand Annual Meeting that will take place in Bangkok, Thailand, from November 6th to 8th, 2019.  

The venue of the conference will be at the Swissôtel Bangkok Ratchada, located in the heart of Bangkok, where you will find extensive choices for accommodation and restaurants, and easy access to the city’s subway system for convenient transport options to and from the meeting place.

In this congress, there will be informative sessions providing updates and practical points on several subspecialties of anatomic pathology, presented by renowned international experts and local specialists.  

 In addition to the academic activities, this year we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of pathology in Thailand, which was started in 1919 by Professor Aller G. Ellis as the first chairman of the Pathology Department at Siriraj Hospital.  The historical aspects of pathology in Thailand will be a special presentation at this meeting by Professor Sanya Sukpanichnant from Siriraj Hospital, Bangkok, Thailand.

I am confident that the event will be a most impressive experience and a great opportunity for you to update your knowledge on diagnostic pathology in several subspecialties, along with taking the opportunity to visit and enjoy the lively city of Bangkok.

We look forward to seeing you at this congress.

Somboon Keelawat, MD., President,
