Annual SOT Satellite Meeting: Updates on Activities Related to 21st Century Toxicology, March 14

If you’re planning to attend the Society of Toxicology conference in Baltimore this March, please join the Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing and the Human Toxicology Project Consortium for our annual satellite meeting on advancing 21st century toxicology, Thursday, March 14, 2019, 12:30-4:00pm, at the Hilton Hotel (SOT HQ hotel), Baltimore, MD.

The satellite meeting provides an informal setting in which interested stakeholders can update each other on this important topic. The meeting will feature a number of invited presentations but also leave time for an “open microphone” segment in which participants are welcome to make announcements or to comment on germane topics, with or without a few slides.

Please register by email at your earliest convenience with Camila Januario at cjanuar1@jhu.edu. Box lunches will be available to those who have pre-registered.
