UVA USCAP 2021 Representation


Although the meeting was held virtually due to COVID19, UVA Path maintained a strong presence at the 2021 Annual Meeting of the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology, where trainees Drs. Ashley Craddock, Anna Dusenbery, Sarah Gradecki, Akriti Gupta, Taylor Jenkins, and Marge Moore presented seven abstracts under the mentorship of Drs. Helen Cathro, Alejandro Gru, Anne Mills, Shyam Raghavan, and Ed Stelow.  Their original research focused on therapeutic biomarkers in breast, head and neck, lung, uterine, and urothelial, carcinomas; cytology screening for precancerous anal squamous lesions; and RNA in situ hybridization for cutaneous lymphoproliferative disorders. In one meeting highlight, senior resident Dr. Sarah Gradecki was also awarded first place poster from the North American Head & Neck Society for her abstract titled, “PRAME Expression in High-Risk HPV-Positive and Negative Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck and Regional Lymph Node Metastases.”  Faculty also shined as educators at the meeting: Dr. Bea Lopes chaired the Neuropathology and Ophthalmic Specialty Conference, and Dr. Anne Mills presented a short course entitled, “Tests, Targets, and Treatments: Emerging Biomarkers in Gynecologic Carcinomas.”
