A Little Bit About The PPS

The Paediatric Pathology Society (PPS), started in 1955 as the Paediatric Pathology Club, is composed of pathologists who specialise in or have a major interest in the pathology of the fetus, neonate or child. The Society exists to promote paediatric pathology in its widest sense, embracing all the disciplines of pathology, but most members are now Histopathologists. Membership is largely European, reflecting the origins of the Society, but is open to those from anywhere in the world.

The Society runs an Annual Scientific Meeting, with meetings generally happening in Europe. Donations to the Society have enabled the institution of a guest lecture - The John Emery Lecture - at the annual meeting and the Norman Brown Award is given for the best presentation by a junior member or guest, and also the Marian Malone Prize which was established in 2016 for the best presentation of a surgical paediatric pathology abstract by a junior pathologist.

Message From The President

Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends,

How excited, and how honored I feel at this moment to address  you with these words as your new President! Thank you all for your support and trust!

We have a myriad of actions to undertake and accomplish together to promote our Society and also make intra and extra Society bonds stronger in order to further enhance our importance and influence.

Our evolving genomic era has profoundly modified our practices.  The development  of members-approved guidelines for best practices in perinatal and paediatric pathology would be beneficial to all practitioners in the field, far beyond our Society. The corollary of their publication would  serve to better advocate our common PPS practice positions among peers.

I warmly welcome all your ideas and suggestions.  Please don't hesitate to reach out to me to discuss your ideas so that we move forward together!

After a wonderful Annual Meeting in Madrid this fall, we’re already deeply in preparations with our SPP colleagues for our joint Annual Meeting in Dublin in September 2024. We sincerely hope to see you all there!

Please stay well and enjoy your practice in our field of paediatric pathology as much as you can.  It is one of the most exciting in medicine!

Jelena Martinovic
PPS President
