It’s no secret that we live in a celebrity centric culture hungry for the latest news about our favorite famous faces. This lecture will employ the fascinating world of celebrities to introduce the immunohistochemical grid approach to cancer disease states. We will specifically use cancer stories from past and present entertainers, athletes, and politicians to examine the histological characteristics and statistics that define various tumor types. These cases will also be our launching pad as we take a deep dive into the intricate world of tumor immunophenotyping by highlighting recent antibody additions and their impact on modern detection. Attendees will learn the utility of these new antibodies and gain a better overall understating of how diagnostic grids are used by pathologists to provide thorough and accurate patient care.
