Tim Allen - President, PPS Dear PPS members,

It is a privilege and a pleasure to serve as PPS President for the 2015-2017 term.  This year marks the 20 year anniversary of the founding of the Pulmonary Pathology Society.  Reflecting on the past, it is the perfect time to express our heartfelt thanks to those who have worked passionately and diligently to build the PPS over the years.  On the recommendation of Bill Travis and others, we will find ways to celebrate our 20 year anniversary over the coming year. 

The first to be acknowledged and thanked are those who, led by Bill Travis, established the PPS in 1995, including Tom Colby (the PPS’s first President), Sam Hammar, Bruce Mckay, Helmut Popper, and Osamu Matsubara.

Tom ColbyAre You Smarter Than Tom Colby?

You are here... because you think you are at least as smart as Tom Colby, the first PPS President.

Well, you may be, but to test your hypothesis, we have selected 20 reasonably challenging lung biopsies and have asked Tom to review them here on the web, sight unseen and WITH NO HISTORY. He has written down his best morphologic diagnosis for each case and these are on file with Ernst and Young, Inc. (secure global auditing firm) for safe keeping during the contest.
