The government's leading toxicologists and environmental health scientists will share their latest scientific accomplishments, offer continuing education courses, discuss funding and training opportunities, receive input on future research priorities, and more, at the Society of Toxicology (SOT) annual meeting.

Staff from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), one of the National Institutes of Health, and the National Toxicology Program (NTP) will speak at more than 30 different sessions and present 60 posters on topics ranging from improving toxicity testing to translational research. Many NIEHS grantees will also showcase their research. For the first time this year, live updates will be provided by conference participants on the NIEHS and NTP web sites.
