Welcome to the New England Society of Pathologists

Committed to the Study of Disease and its Alleviation

The New England Society of Pathologists invites all pathologists in New England to join.  As a non-profit medical organization, our goal is to update each other on advances in current diagnostic issues in pathology, and in the understanding of basic pathobiology.  Our members are pathologists in practice or on the faculty of medical schools and universities around New England.  Each year, we sponsor four major lectures, meeting predominantly in Boston.  Several of our lectures are sponsored by academic medical centers in Boston, and are sponsored in recognition of a distinguished pathologist in the history of that medical center.  It is easy to become a member – just click the Join link above.

Message from Our President

I am proud to be president of the New England Society of Pathologists that works hard at promoting education and advancements in Pathology. NESP has been running uninterruptedly for 90 years despite difficult times such as the COVID pandemic. It has served to recognize pathologists and other scientists who have made important contributions to the field. I encourage member participation as a means of career advancement, networking, and support to our important mission.

I look forward to seeing you in person at our next meeting.

Yours sincerely,

Mariana Canepa, M.D.
