The Jagiellonian University (JU) in Kraków was visited by over 300 veterinary scientists, mainly veterinary pathomorphologists, from 42 countries. They participated in a Pathology Symposium, the 27th Meeting of the European Society of Veterinary Pathology (ESVP) and European College of Veterinary Pathologists (ECVP), the Annual Meeting of the International Society of Veterinary Dermatopathology (ISVD), and a Clinical Satellite Session “From diagnosis to treatment” of the Oncology Section of the Polish Small Animal Veterinary Association (PSLWMZ), which were held from 7 to 12 September 2009. The events were organised by the Chair of Pathophysiology, Forensic Veterinary Medicine and Administration of the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn (UWM), with the participation of the Chair of Pathomorphology of JU and the Polish Society of Pathologists. The symposium included eighteen lectures, 44 oral presentations as well as over 250 research papers by about 800 authors and several dozen of the most interesting clinical and pathomorphological cases. Furthermore, nine training sessions, 8 poster tours and two workshops were held.

Why in Kraków?

In 2004, the ESVP congress took place in Olsztyn [1] and it was the first meeting of the society in its history to be held in an Eastern European country [2, 3]. It was an outstanding organisational success and the main reason for choosing the same organisers, headed by Professor Józef Szarek, to organise the 27th meeting of the society in Kraków [4].

Symposium of Pathology

The Symposium of Pathology, organised by the C. L. Davis Foundation – European Division [5], prepared by Professor Alun Williams of the Royal Veterinary College in England, co-organised by the Organising Committee of the 27th Meeting of the ESVP and ECVP from the UWM in Olsztyn, was solemnly inaugurated on 7 September 2009. During two subsequent days of the meeting, 11 lectures were presented by world famous scientists, e.g. Tony Hayes (University of Guelph, Canada) on pathology of the liver, David Argyle (University of Edinburgh, UK) on stem cells and Roderick Else (University of Edinburgh, UK) on cardiovascular pathology. The group also included Krzysztof Bardadin MD, PhD, from Poland, who presented an interesting and topical issue of liver fibrosis.
