A big thank you to all participants, sponsors and the esteemed speakers, who have participated in such a large number. I consider it as my privilege and opportunity to welcome you all to this unique virtual conference and that it’s my first experience, too, of a ‘virtual conference’.
As you all know that this conference is scheduled from 22 to 24 October and shall proceed as per the agenda already shared to you all. I seek your cooperation to follow the agenda and time. Each rapporteur shall ensure it.
Once again on behalf of STP-I, I welcome you all to the 8th STP-I conference, a virtual conference though. I took over as the President, STP-I during 2018 conference. We had already made plans for the scheduled face to face conference during October-November 2020.
We had kept our hopes alive till August, 2020, to be able to have a face to face conference, but finally we had to give in for obvious reasons and cancelled our plans to hold a face to face conference during October-November 2020. Finally, here we are going ahead, with the virtual 8th STP-I conference. Although, being a President, I am delivering the opening address, but without any doubt, all credit goes to my younger colleagues, whose relentless efforts made this daunting task possible and seemed to look easy.
We all are looking forward to actively participate and listen to highly respected and esteemed expert toxico-pathologists via virtual platform regarding Toxicologic Pathology of Medical Devices.
I once again welcome you all and the subject experts to make this unique experience of a virtual conference, not only exciting, but a successful event to gain knowledge on the Toxicologic Pathology of Medical Devices.
Thanks and good luck.
