Toxicologists' annual meeting in San Francisco to showcase the latest scientific achievements
Date:1/24/2012

Reston VA More than 7,000 toxicologists from every corner of the globe are expected to attend the Society of Toxicology (SOT) 51st Annual Meeting and ToxExpo, which will highlight toxicology's crucial role in creating a safer and healthier world. The five-day meeting will take place at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco from March 11-15, 2012.

Toxicology is the study of the adverse effects of chemical, physical or biological agents on people, animals and the environment and the development of strategies to prevent those adverse impacts. Toxicologists are trained scientists who investigate, interpret and communicate the nature of these negative effects as they relate to the life and environment that surrounds us.

As the news media, the public and various stakeholder groups raise concerns about the safety of everyday items, all news media are encouraged to attend the meeting to gather up-to-date information.

The SOT is a scientific, not-for-profit organization for professionals from around the world involved in the study of toxicology. With more than 7,000 members, SOT is creating a safer and healthier world by advancing the science of toxicology. SOT is a forum for novel discoveries and approaches related to toxicology, fosters integration of sub-disciplines that support the evolution of toxicology and, among other things, increases the impact of toxicology on human health and disease prevention.

This five-day meeting will feature several special sessions that highlight toxicology's progress over the past five decades. A sampling of the sessions follows:

  • Global Health and Environmental Impacts of E-Waste Recycling
  • What's the Buzz: Bee Health and California's Agricultural Industry
  • Toxicological Impact of Metals, Crude Oil and Chemical Dispersants from the Gulf of Mexico Oil Crisis on Human and Animal Health
  • Breast Cancer as a Multifactorial Disease: Interaction of Genetics, Life Stage, and the Environment
  • Dietary Supplement Adulteration and Impact on Human Health
  • Advancing Food Safety in a Global Marketplace
