Announcement: RCPath Gold Research Medal

Congratulations to Katherine Hughes who was awarded the Royal College of Pathologists Gold Research Medal 2012 for her paper entitled Conditional deletion of Stat3 in mammary epithelium impairs the acute phase response and modulates immune cell number during post-lactational regression which was first published in January 2012 in The Journal of Pathology.

Call for papers: Next generation sequencing studies with relevance to the understanding of disease mechanisms

The coupling of pathology with massively parallel sequencing studies provides a unique opportunity to further our understanding of the pathophysiological and pathogenetic mechanisms of human disease, a major interest of The Journal of Pathology.

The Journal is now soliciting submissions of primary research based on massively parallel sequencing taking advantage of novel insights into the genetic basis of human diseases, including but not restricted to, the identification of new genotype-phenotype associations and novel driver mutations, characterisation of patterns of genetic instability, and on the topic of intra-tumour genetic heterogeneity.
