Speech Title: "Digital Pathology: Opportunities and Challenges"

Digital pathology is a rapidly developing field of medical imaging. However, the huge dimension of the whole-slide high-resolution images required for cancer detection (typically in the order of +10GPixels) and the competition of traditional microscopes with their easy manipulation are difficult obstacles for the generalized adoption of digital viewers and analysis tools. According to recent studies a pathologist takes 60% longer to produce an analysis with a virtual slide than using a conventional microscope. To overcome this important inconvenient correct strategies and careful user interfaces must be designed. While software forfully automated detection of pathologies is being developed but used on limited and very specific situations mainly due to limitations on the algorithms and inefficiency caused by the extremely high number of pixels, the manual analysis and annotation of biopsy images present several important advantages over the traditional approach of watching and writing conclusions. In fact, digital image analysis allows the creation of reports that can be audited, increases the safety on the analysis by providing user feedback, potentiates the collaboration between pathologists and enables the automatic comparison between different analysis. Moreover, the creation of repositories of digital images and corresponding analysis can lead to the creation of pathology atlases that can be very important on the education and training of pathologists.
However, for the generalized adoption of digital slides on histopathological image analysis image viewing must be optimized to compete with the analogical viewing of traditional microscopes and user interfaces carefully design adopting the most appropriated input devices to create the most friendly and work effective environment. In this talk we will address the main challenges of this field of activity and present the adopted solutions so far to achieve a useful digital system that can be used daily by pathologists without loss of efficiency and improvement of their analysis results.

Plenary Speakers

Plenary Speaker I

Prof. Chanchal K. Mitra
University of Hyderabad, India

Chanchal Kumar Mitra (born November 02, 1950; W Bengal, India) is currently (2015-2017) an UGC (University Grants Commission, Government of India) Emeritus Professor at the Department of Biochemistry, University of Hyderabad. He obtained his B.Sc. (Bachelor of Science) degree from the Presidency College (University of Calcutta) with Chemistry as the main subject (1969) and his M.Sc. (Master of Science) degree from the same university in 1971 in Pure Chemistry. He did his doctoral work at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Bombay (now Mumbai) on computational studies on the conformations of several aza-nucleosides and received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Bombay in 1977. He did post doctoral work at the University at Albany (New York, USA) and University of Lund (Sweden). He joined the University of Hyderabad in 1985 and retired in 2015. His current research interests are (I) biosensors and (II) modeling of metabolic pathways. He has a number of publications in the relevant areas which can be found from https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Chanchal_Mitra/contributions.

Speech Title: "The Dynamics of the Metabolic Pathways"

Although there are about 20K genes in the human genome, many are not active at any given time. The metabolite concentrations, at the lowest level, change fastest. The protein and enzymes, at the next higher level, change rather slowly. In fact it may be safe to assume that many proteins and enzymes maintain a rather steady state concentration in a normal cell under resting conditions. By the same logic, the changes at the genome level are relatively slow. In general the metabolic pathway is stable and robust within some limitations. We analyze the urea cycle in detail and study the flux balance equations in detail. The stability and robustness of the pathway does mean that the actual activity of various enzymes is rather less important because metabolite concentrations are more effectively regulated by feedbacks and other regulators. Therefore, we propose that the circuit is more important than the actual concentrations of the various enzymes. We already know that physiological concentrations of various key metabolites can vary within some margin but the system can be unpredictable if they stray beyond some limit. The results may be interesting for drug designers today.
