The SOT Annual Meeting provides the most complete and in-depth coverage of toxicology. The meeting is the venue for toxicologists to learn about the scientific advances that have taken place over the past 12 months. The Scientific Program Committee has devised a thematic program that encompasses five themes of topical interest. This year, these themes are:

  • Advancing Clinical and Translational Toxicology
  • Approaches for Protecting Vulnerable Populations
  • Epigenomic Influences in Toxicological Responses
  • Safety Assessment Approaches for Product Development
  • Strategies for Exposure and Risk Assessments

With more than 6,500 toxicologists from more than 50 countries in attendance, this five-day event allows everyone the opportunity to network with colleagues and leading scientists from around the world.
