The Society of Toxicology (SOT) Annual Meeting in March 2021 is going virtual!
Toxicologists address critical issues and make the world a healthier and safer place by studying the effects of physical, biological, and chemical agents on people, animals, and the environment. Many students who learn about the discipline of toxicology are excited about career opportunities that involve research and the potential to make a positive contribution to health and safety. More information on opportunities in toxicology can be found on the Undergraduate Programs flyer.
For students and faculty with research data to present, or educators with education abstracts, the Abstract Submission deadline is December 1. The undergraduate awards deadline is 11:59 pm ET October 26.
