It is our pleasure to invite you to the thirteenth meeting for the Society for Ultrastructural Pathology to be held on July 9 - 14, 2006 in wonderful Rapid City, South Dakota USA.

The Society for Ultrastructural Pathology is an international association of electron microscopists formed in 1986. The society supports and promotes the application of electron microscopy in the diagnosis and research of human diseases. The academic objectives of the society are carried out at the companion meeting of the annual United States and Canadian academy of Pathology meeting and at the biennial Ultrapath conferences.

The scientific program in Ultrapath XIII will cover diagnostic electron microscopy as well as diagnostic pathology with immunohistochemical and molecular correlations. Renowned experts in the field from both sides of the Atlantic will present updated, comprehensive reviews of significant areas of pathology. Platform and poster presentations will also be an important part of the program. The Ultrapath XIII organizing committee invites authors to submit abstracts to be considered for presentation.
