Society of Toxicology Annual Meeting & ToxExpo March 22 – 26, 2015 San Diego, CA

The SOT Annual Meeting is the largest meeting of its kind. This annual event features a broad range of scientific sessions and a thematic program that provides partici-pants with a unique opportunity to deepen their knowledge in topical areas and interact with leaders in their respective disciplines. The scientific program includes a plenary session, the MRC Lecture, symposia, work-shops, roundtable discussions, informational sessions, regional sessions, as well as platform and poster sessions. The Society anticipates that more than 6,500 toxicologists from more than 50 countries will attend. The SOT Annual Meeting also features the ToxExpo, which is the largest exhibition dedicated to toxicology and the biomedical sciences. The exhibition features 350 exhibitors, exhibitor-hosted sessions, and the opportunity to debut cutting-edge products, services, and technologies.

nnovative Perspectives

The SOT Annual Meeting provides the most complete and in-depth coverage of toxicology. The Scientific Program Committee’s (SPC) mission is to devise a scientific program that covers the diverse areas of science that toxicology encompasses. The meeting is the venue for toxicologists to learn about the scientific advances that have taken place over the past 12 months. The Scientific Program Committee reviews more than 2,500 abstracts to deliver the most comprehensive and up-to-date program imaginable.

In-Depth Analysis

The Scientific Program Committee has devised a thematic program that encompasses five themes of topical interest. This year, these themes are:

  • Advancing Clinical and Translational Toxicology and Application of Biomarkers
  • Enhancing Strategies for Risk Assessment
  • New Science and Perspectives Surrounding Environmental and Occupational Exposures
  • Safety Assessment: Mechanisms and Novel Methods
  • Stem Cell Models for Integrated Biology

Countless Networking Opportunities

With more than 6,500 toxicologists from more than 50 countries in attendance, this five-day event allows everyone the opportu-nity to network with colleagues and leading scientists from around the world.

A Global Audience

More than 20 percent of the attendees come from countries as far away as Australia, Egypt, China, Latin America, and Africa. Toxicologists can explore lessons learned, share scientific findings, and novel approaches with other toxicologists at this annual event, which is designed to showcase the year’s latest in research.



The SOT Annual Meeting is one of the most cost-effective meetings you can attend. For example, you pay $300 for early-bird registration, compared to an average cost of $461 for similar toxicology society meetings. Also, SOT has arranged air carrier dicounts and has reserved SOT Annual Meeting attendee discounted rates rooms at various hotels in the Phoenix area through the SOT hotel room block.
