Giving Tuesday is Tomorrow! Together We Give!

Giving Tuesday

This has been a difficult year for everyone—especially those who are experiencing isolation due to COVID-19. Many people are desperate for connection, and we try to share resources to encourage the ASIP spirit during these challenging times. The pandemic continues to take a toll on health care workers.


There is hope, and you can help.
We want to continue our efforts in discovering disease mechanisms with even more ways to support education in pathology. We would love to have you join us for #GivingTuesday. 
ASIP joined #GivingTuesday last year and raised funds for travel awards. This year our goal is to raise $10,000. Your donations will be matched by the ASIP!


How can you help?

As a supporter of the ASIP, we need your help. Please share our fundraiser with your network on #GivingTuesday. We welcome any donation amount. Mark your calendar and help us reach our $10,000 goal. 
How will the money raised be used?

This year, the ASIP is fundraising to provide support for undergraduate to work in a research laboratory during summer 2021 through the ASIP Summer Research Opportunity Program in Pathology (SROPP). This program promotes the entry of young scientists into the mainstream of the basic, translational, and clinical research communities and provides summer research opportunities in pathobiology mentored by ASIP members. Donations can also be designated towards the Pathology Leadership Fund, any of our named Trainee Scholar Awards, or any of our named Junior Faculty Scholar Awards.


Why Give?

Your Impact has helped many past award recipients. Will you consider donating this year to ASIP to help advance pathology education?
Every $ raised is helpful. Thank you for your support. Click the red button below to donate. We are grateful for you and your generosity. Together, we can make lasting change.

Dr. Cecelia Yates Receives the Emerging Innovator Award from the University of Pittsburgh

Yates
Yates

Congratulations to Dr. Cecelia Yates for receiving the Emerging Innovator Award from the University of Pittsburgh Innovation Institute. The Innovation Institute established the Emerging Innovator Award in recognition of the potential difference developers can make on people’s lives through commercial translation. The Emerging Innovator Award was established three years ago to recognize Pitt innovators in mid-career who have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to achieving impact for their research through commercialization.

Dr. Yates is an Associate Professor in the Department of Health Promotion & Development, School of Nursing at the University of Pittsburgh, with secondary appointments in the Department of Pathology, School of Medicine, and the Department of Bioengineering, School of Engineering.  Additionally, she is co-director of the University of Pittsburgh’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute’s TL1 Predoctoral Fellowship sponsored by NIH Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program. Dr. Yates attended Tuskegee University, Tuskegee, Alabama, where she earned her BS in Biology/Chemistry and her PhD in Integrative Biomedical Science and Pathology in conjunction with the University of Pittsburgh. Upon completing her education, she participated in a Fellowship in Pathology at Pitt’s School of Medicine.

She is the co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Fibrokine Inc., a Pittsburgh-based start-up developing a broad spectrum of anti‐fibrotic chemokine peptides to treat organ fibrosis. She is also the co-founder and member of the Scientific Advisory Board of a Pittsburgh-based start-up, Ocugenix, focused on ocular therapeutic development. In addition, she is involved with several ongoing therapeutic commercialization ventures.

Dr. Yates has over 15 years of experience in fibroblast, chemokine, and extracellular matrix biology and the pathogenesis of organ fibrosis. She has a continuous track record of innovative research and therapeutic development in the field of tissue repair. Her research focuses are on understanding immune cell and stromal cell mediated interactions that contribute to the pathogenesis of fibrotic diseases such as systemic sclerosis (Scleroderma) and IPF. Her research group combines both translational and clinical models to develop therapeutics including biometric peptides, cellular transplantation, and bioreactive scaffolds to promote tissue regeneration. Dr. Yates’ research has been supported externally by the National Institute of Nursing Research, National Institute of General Medical Sciences, National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, and internally by the Chancellor’s Innovation Award, the Center for Medical Innovation, and the University of Pittsburgh Genomic Hub. Dr. Yates’ entrepreneurial activities include more than eight issued US patents, several international patents, and pending applications associated with her work.

Dr. Yates received the 2011 ASIP Excellence in Science Award and serves on the ASIP Council in the role of Councilor At-large. She is a member of a number of ASIP Committees, including the Research and Science Policy Committee and the Membership Committee. Dr. Yates serves as a member of the Editorial Board for The American Journal of Pathology

Congratulations, Dr. Yates!

#PISA2020 Day 4!

Yesterday was another full day at PISA 2020 with exciting scientific sessions, Meet-the-Expert sessions, Trainee Advising Sessions, and special events. Today and tomorrow will be equally exciting and full.

TODAY at PISA 2020…We will open the day with three Trainee Advising Sessions at 8:00 AM, 9:00 AM, and 10:00 AM, on the topics of “Transitioning from Academic Research to Biotech R&D,” “Summer Research Programs,” and “When and How to Find a Post-doc Laboratory.” At 11:00 AM, pre-registered trainees will attend the Pathology Career Pathway Networking event featuring 14 biotech professionals. At 1:00 PM, the scientific program will begin with a Plenary Session on “Computational Pathology: Big Data, Big Ideas Translation” followed by concurrent Symposia focused on “New Horizons for Neutrophils and Monocytes in Mucosal and Vascular Cell Biology” and “Molecular Diagnostics: The Liquid Biopsy.” The afternoon Symposia sessions will feature both invited speakers and abstract-driven short talks. The scientific program will end at 5:00 PM.

Be sure to visit the ePosters when you have a break or after the day has ended. ePosters are available for viewing 24 hours per day. Also, watch for new on-demand content to be posted later today.

Have a great day at PISA 2020!

#PISA2020 Day 4!

No Description

Program

On-demand content from Monday’s sessions at PISA 2020 are now available for viewing. You will note a camera icon beside the sessions in the schedule for the scientific program on the Confex meeting website. We hope that this on-demand content will be useful for those of you that might have missed a part or all of a session due to other obligations. More on-demand content will roll out every day of the meeting with a 24-48 hour delay from the live sessions to enable processing of the video. The on-demand content will eventually move over to the PISA 2020 website where it will remain accessible for a short period after the end of the meeting. Once the on-demand content moves to the PISA 2020 website, it will become password protected as only PISA 2020 meeting attendees will have access.

Don’t forget to visit the ePosters!!
