HISTORY of BBOP
The Bulletin Board for Oral Pathology was started in September 1994 and
the number of its subscribers has grown steadily since then. As of June 2015 there were over 700 subscribers from 36 countries around the world.
The objective was for BBOP to be:
"A forum for the interchange of ideas, discussion of topics and announcements
concerning Oral Pathology service, research and teaching"
SUBSCRIBING TO BBOP
At the present time, anyone with an interest in Oral Pathology may subscribe
to the BBOPLIST. There is no charge. Subscription is easily accomplished
by sending an E mail message to
Your message should simply be
SUBSCRIBE BBOPLIST Your first name Your last name
so Rudolf Virchow would have sent
SUBSCRIBE BBOPLIST RUDOLF VIRCHOW
You should have your application acknowledged within 24 hours and you
will be asked to confirm your interest in being a subscriber. When you
confirm your interest, you will be enrolled to the official list of subscribers.
This will allow you to receive all messages posted to the BBOPLIST and
also to post messages of your own. All subscribers have the right to access
the archives of the list and details of how this may be done will be sent
to you at the time of your enrollment. (SEE BELOW, BBOP
Activity on the BBOP frequently concerns challenging histological and clinical
cases and it is hoped that the introduction of the BBOP Web Site (BBOPWS)
will permit appropriate images (histologic, radiographic and clinical)
to be posted on the site. These images could enhance the interchange of
comments about cases. If you do not have access to a scanner we would be
pleased to digitize your images. In such cases, we would need to have color
slides or photographs sent through regular mail to either of the managers
of the BBOPLIST (see below). Unfortunately, we are not able to prepare
histologic images from microscopic slides.
Anyone wishing to post an image to the BBOPWS should send the digitized
image(s) in JPEG (.JPG) or GIF format through E mail to
Color slides and photographs to be digitized should be sent to Alfredo
Aguirre, Squire Hall, 3435 Main Street, Buffalo, New York
All messages posted to BBOP have been archived since its inception. They
are accessible to all subscribers by sending an E mail message requesting
a particular log. The BBOPWS will permit a much more convenient way to
access the logs. Say, for example that you remember reading about a particular
topic which was the subject of discussion on BBOP but you are unable to
remember precisely when the discussion appeared. You will be able to access
the logs through the links on the Web Site and then enter the "search"
mode to link immediately to the relevant section of the archives.
