Hear about emerging trends in toxicology research
Date:3/13/2009

What: The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), will have a major presence at the annual Society of Toxicology (SOT) meeting in Baltimore, Md. Scientists from the NIEHS and the National Toxicology Program (NTP), which NIEHS administers, as well as their grantees and collaborators, will share the newest advances, applications and thinking in the field of toxicology.

Why: The SOT Annual Meeting is the largest toxicology meeting and exhibition in the world, attracting approximately 6,500 scientists from industry, academia and government. Toxicology plays an important role in understanding the effects that chemical agents have in our environment. Attending or arranging phone interviews will allow reporters to meet Linda Birnbaum, the new NIEHS/NTP director; hear about the new criteria NTP will be using to evaluate non-cancer studies; learn about new research funding opportunities including the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act; and hear about cutting-edge science.

When: March 15-19, 2009

Where: Society for Toxicology Annual Meeting
Baltimore Convention Center
Baltimore, Maryland 21202
