The Society of Toxicology (SOT) 52nd Annual Meeting is the largest toxicology meeting and exhibition in the world, with an expected attendance of more than 7,300 scientists from academia, government, and industry from various countries around the globe. From the Plenary Opening Lecture and featured lectures to the wide range of scientific sessions and Continuing Education courses, the Annual Meeting offers an unparalleled depth of analysis and relevant toxicological issues. From basic to advanced topical issues, the thematic approach provides each attendee an opportunity to learn about emerging fields. This year's meeting is being held in the beautiful city of San Antonio, Texas on March 10-14, 2013.

 

Toxicology Excellence for Risk Assessment (TERA) is a SOT Annual Meeting Silver Level Sponsor and will be exhibiting at the ToxExpo (Booth#514). TERA scientists will be presenting eleven scientific posters and co-chairing a platform session on "Mode of Action and Human Relevance of Rodent Tumors."
