Organizer: Society of Toxicology (SOT)

Phoenix, Arizona - March 23-27, 2014

The Society of Toxicology (SOT) Annual Meeting 2014 features a broad range of scientific sessions and a thematic program. More than 6,500 toxicologists from more than 50 countries will attend and learn about the scientific advances that have taken place over the past 12 months. The SOT Annual Meeting also features the ToxExpo, which is the largest exhibition dedicated to toxicology and the biomedical sciences.  

After reviewing more than 2,500 abstracts, the SOT Scientific Program Committee devised a thematic program that encompasses five themes of topical interest:

  • Advancing Clinical and Translational Toxicology and Application of Biomarkers
  • Enhancing Strategies for Risk Assessment
  • New Science and Perspectives Surrounding Environmental and Occupational Exposures
  • Safety Assessment: Mechanisms and Novel Methods
  • Stem Cell Models for Integrated Biology

Several scientists from the European Commission's Joint Research Centre EURL ECVAM (the EU Reference Laboratory for Alternatives to Animal Testing) will contribute to the conference. More particularly, Maurice Whelan (Head of EURL ECVAM) will present 'An International Program for the Development of Adverse Outcome Pathways to Support Chemical Risk Assessment' within the scientific session entitled 'AOP as an Integrative Framework for Predictive Toxicology: Combining Top-Down and Bottom-Up Thinking'; Anna Price (EURL ECVAM) will give an introductory talk to the session entitled ‘Application of the AOP Concept to Neurotoxicology: A Challenging Approach’ and co-chair the same session, organised as a worskhop; Clemens Wittwehr (EURL ECVAM) will chair three sessions to capture stakeholder requirements for the AOP Knowledge Base.
