Cover image for lecture: The Path Lab - Your New Best Friends

Lecture Overview

The motto of the Royal College of Pathologists is: 'pathology is medicine', for without pathology, our jobs as healthcare professionals would be meaningless. In fact, these two professions are so tightly interwoven that they are completely dependent on each other. Dr Joan Faoagali presents an animated and modern talk in which she proposes that we need to make the pathology labratory our new BFFs (best friend forever).
