  • ASIP Member Dr. James Musser featured for COVID-19 Research

    James Musser, MD, spoke with The New York Times about how COVID-19’s genetic code plays a vital role in controlling the virus.

    Since last March, a team of researchers led by Dr. James Musser, chair of the department of pathology and genomic medicine at Houston Methodist Hospital, have been sequencing the viral genomes drawn from patients — 20,000 genomes so far. This new study has found that every coronavirus variant of concern to researchers around the world has been circulating in Houston at a low level for at least six to eight weeks. Houston is the first U.S. city to find all of the variants, including those recently reported in California and New York and the ones found in Brazil, Britain and South Africa.

The mission of the Society is to promote the discovery, advancement, and dissemination of basic and translational knowledge in experimental pathology and related disciplines. This shall be achieved by fostering investigation into the pathogenesis, classification, diagnosis, and manifestations of disease through meetings, publications, and educational activities.

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.

ASIP welcomes basic and clinical biomedical research scientists as active members.

ASIP is a member of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), a coalition of 26 independent societies that plays an active role in lobbying for the interests of 115,000 biomedical scientists.

Drs. Buja and Vander Heide will discuss up-to-date information regarding the pathobiology of COVID-19 based on their personal experiences conducting autopsies on COVID-19 positive patients in Houston, Texas and New Orleans, Louisiana, respectively. In addition, they will review information from autopsy series starting to emerge from other US cities as well as other countries. The speakers will present the actual evidence that COVID-19 is a systemic viral disease with multifaceted abnormalities of the lungs and the heart.

See the Questions and Answers!


Drs. Buja and Williamson will discuss and address the concerns surrounding the postmortem examination of COVID-19 decedents as well as the use of effective personal protective equipment while conducting these autopsies. In addition, the speakers will share their knowledge of the findings reported to date in decedents dying of or with COVID-19

Webinar Learning Objectives and Recommended Reading


Drs. Tsongalis and Fernandes will discuss the challenges of implementing Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) testing for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA during the recent COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, they will focus on the implementation and clinical utility of these EUA tests for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA at laboratories in the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic.
