2018 will be remembered as a decisive year for immuno-oncology. In particular, Nobel Prize winners James Allison of MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, and Tasuku Honjo of Kyoto University in Japan lifted the field of immunotherapy to international recognition for those outside the scientific and medical communities. For the patient, these new alternatives to standard oncology therapies offer new hope for life-extending treatments using immunotherapy.

Digital pathology is based on creating a digital replica of the glass slide, called whole slide image (WSI). This image is then viewed in a computer screen, which eliminates the need for using a microscope. Can you imagine working in a glassless environment, with better ergonomics and being able to immediately find the slide you need?
