Proceedings 14th Histopathology Workshop

Proceedings of the 14th Histopathology Workshop

Hosted -as for over 25 years- by the biennial EAFP International Conference, the 14th edition of Fish Histopathology Workshop took place on 8th September 2019, in the Faculty of Sciences, University of Porto, Portugal.

Once again, the workshop was a successful meeting, and very well attended by over 95 colleagues from all around the world.

The 2019 edition included the excellent addition of the invited speaker Dr. Jeff Wolf (Experimental Pathology Laboratories, Sterling, Virginia, USA) who covered the relevant subject of “Artefacts in Fish Histology” and also presented a large number of outstanding and interesting cases within the theme of the workshop: “Skin-associated Pathology”.

The list below shows all the presentations provided during the workshop. The access to the workshop proceedings is granted to active EAFP members only.
