About the Association

The objectives of the Association are to promote the study of the pathology of breast diseases, to advance the knowledge and practice of breast pathology and improve the accuracy and consistency of breast lesion diagnosis. It aims to be a major voice of breast pathology in the UK.

The association was founded due to the vision and drive of Dr Rahul Deb. He conducted a nationwide survey of breast pathologists which confirmed a need for an association that would provide support and guidance for breast pathologists and those who work with them. The ABP has since hosted two successful conferences for its members, who provide breast pathology services in a range of settings. 

We cater for everyone - general pathologists in DGH laboratories, monospecialists, screening, symptomatic-only, biomedical scientists and trainees.
