A year comes to an end, a zone of time winds up. A time to take a look at what has been done. The year's behind has passed a strong and solid path on cytogenetics and molecular events on which we shall walk further down to newer emerging trends in biology and science.

A paradigm shift has occurred in the treatment of oral diseases and oral cancer with a respect for conservative, yet fulfilling treatment. We have transcendented over just nomenclature details to tissue with cell based mechanisms to design our drugs. There has never been such a union of Oral pathology with Medicine and Surgery. This provides us with an immense impetus to look into the new and the old pathologies with a fresh approach. “Etiopathogenesis” might become the word of the day with disclosure of specific proteins and pathways to be targeted. This is a change to also learn homeostasis and health in a tissue and organism all over again.

The Renaissance thinkers and investigators always told:- “Science is a mean and way to explain creation”. We come back to the same platform, where we want to understand an organism better than just create great chemical medications. A thread of strength, that is immune make up of an individual to fight a disease or cancer is being relooked at. The day is not far when a strong fabric can be weaved out of this immune system function and its enhancement in strength to perform will protect organisms/humans much better against diseases and cancer.

Personalized Medicine and therapy will go ahead to cater a better health and improve quality of life.

All of this will start at the bench of the Diagnosis and Research Pathologist. There are new things to see and greater things to disclose. Hope you had a great year and shall build on it in the coming year 2016.
