The Pancreatobiliary Pathology Society Journal Watch for the articles on the pancreatobiliary pathology will be released every other month.
We are reviewing the journals to select the articles about pancreas, gallbladder and biliary system pathologies. Original research articles, case series and reviews in the surgical pathology, cytopathology, and molecular pathology as well as related fields (i.e. novel methods, database studies) are included.
We have created several categories for convenience; however, articles in each category are in no particular order.
Below is the list of journals we search regularly:
Advances in Anatomic Pathology
American Journal of Clinical Pathology
The American Journal of Pathology
American Journal of Surgical Pathology
Annals of Diagnostic Pathology
Annals of Surgery
Annals of Surgical Oncology
Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine
Clinical Cancer Research
Histology and Histopathology
International Journal of Surgical Pathology
Journal of Clinical Pathology
Journal of Molecular Diagnostics
Journal of Pathology
Nature Reviews Gastroenterology & Hepatology

Last year was a very productive year that culminated with our inaugural Companion Society Meeting at the annual USCAP meeting in Vancouver, Canada in March. I want to thank our speakers, Ralph Hruban, Olca Basturk, and Gunter Kloppel for their excellent educational talks, and Daniela Allende and Grace Kim for presenting a summary of the findings from the Grossing Working Group, our first active working group. I want to thank the audience for their attendance (and for not being distracted by the beautiful scenery that flanked one entire wall of the meeting room).
Members of all PBPS committees worked extremely hard over the past year not only to create a successful companion session, but to also strengthen existing and bring new activities to our young society. I’d like to recognize the following members who really made this past year a success: Olca Basturk, who was instrumental in organizing the companion session; Daniela Allende and Grace Kim, for their contributions to the companion session; Mabel Ko for creating, updating and managing our website; and David Lewin, for running the business meeting and keeping our finances in order.
I’d like to touch upon a few items that are currently in the PBPS pipeline:
The Grossing Working Group is in the process of converting their Companion Society meeting presentation into a manuscript.
I am honored to have been elected President of the PBPS and I am proud to carry on the tradition of fostering excellence and collaboration in education, research and the clinical practice of pancreatobiliary pathology around the world.
