APC exists to provide leadership and advocacy for the dynamic discipline of Pathology and to enable academic departments to meet the demands of their three missions - medical education, research and practice.  The APC provides education, training, information resources and networking opportunities for chairs, residency program directors through Program Directors Section or PRODS, medical student educators through Undergraduate Medical Educators Section or UMEDS, and department administrators through Pathology Department Administrators Section or PDAS in its 180 member institutions.    In a March 18, 2011 letter notifying Dr. Anderson of his award, Peter E. Jensen, MD, President, Association of Pathology Chairs ARUP Professor and Chair Department of Pathology University of Utah Emma Eccles Jones Medical Research Building said, “Your contributions will have a lasting impact on medical education, and a great and continuing legacy through your efforts in training individual physicians.”   In addition to this honor, Dr. Anderson has many other extraordinary achievements.  A “One Health in ACTION” example: The coronary artery stent commonly used in people having heart attacks was invented in the 1990s by an Australian trained veterinarian/physician, Dr. Gary Roubin, now a prominent practicing physician interventional cardiologist in New York (USA) and the late physician-radiologist Cesare Gianturco, MD (1905-1995).  As a veterinarian pathologist at the University of Alabama Birmingham School of Medicine and a collaborator with Dr. Roubin, Dr. Peter Anderson performed the pathology examinations on intracoronary stents in pigs and these studies were sent to the FDA in order to get the stent approved for human use.  Dr. Anderson also holds the patent for the idea of using a Taxol (paclitaxel) drug coating on the stents to help prevent restenosis.
