SOT Satellite Meeting

Updates on 21st Century Toxicology Activities and Related Efforts:
Invited Presentations and Open Microphone
March 27, 2014
Phoenix, AZ

A Society of Toxicology (SOT) satellite meeting organized by the Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT) and The Human Toxicology Project Consortium (HTPC) to be held Thursday, March 27, 2014 from 12:30-4:00pm in the Deer Valley Room, Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel (340 N. 3rd St., Phoenix).

For the past several years CAAT has organized satellite meetings in conjunction with the SOT annual conferences. The HTPC joined CAAT in co-organizing these meetings beginning in 2012. The forums have focused on “21st century toxicology” involving in vitro, pathway-based approaches, and more recently, have also addressed evidence-based toxicology, that is, attempts to translate systematic reviews and related approaches from evidence-based medicine into toxicology. The purpose of these satellite meetings has been to provide a forum for interested stakeholders to update each other on their research and other efforts related to these topics. The meetings have been largely informal in the sense that anyone could give a presentation, provided that it was germane and brief.

As in 2013, CAAT/HTPC plan to “seed” the 2014 satellite meeting with a limited number of invited presentations, but also leave ample time for additional presentations and discussion during an “open microphone” segment.
