The American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP) is a society of biomedical scientists who investigate mechanisms of disease. Investigative pathology is an integrative discipline that links the presentation of disease in the whole organism to its fundamental cellular and molecular mechanisms. It uses a variety of structural, functional, and genetic techniques and ultimately applies research findings to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. ASIP advocates for the practice of investigative pathology and fosters the professional career development and education of its members.
The Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) was founded in 1995 to provide structure and leadership to the emerging field of molecular diagnostics. AMP's 2,300+ members include individuals from academic and community medical centers, government, and industry; including pathologist and doctoral scientist laboratory directors; basic and translational scientists; technologists; and trainees.
The Association of Pathology Chairs (APC) is a non-profit society which serves as the voice of academic departments of Pathology in the U.S. and Canada. APC exists to provide leadership and advocacy for the dynamic discipline of Pathology, and to enable academic departments to meet the demands of their three missions: medical education, research, and practice.
Established in 1999, for the purpose of establishing standards of excellence in education, training and experience essential for competency in toxicologic pathology, to support the education of scientists and other members of society with evolving, relevant knowledge important to the health of society, to advise governmental policy leaders on issues of toxicology and pathology, and to develop expert opinions on issues relevant to product safety. IATP promotes these educational standards by recognizing and accrediting toxicologic pathologists through a peer-review process in order to ensure the competence and experience of professional practitioners whose work affects the public welfare throughout the world.
