Trainee sign-up is now open for the annual Poster Tours for Trainees event during the 2024 SOT Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City.

This is a valuable opportunity for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars to participate in a one-hour, guided Poster Tour with an expert toxicologist to explore topics related to your specific interests. Join your guide to take part in critical evaluation of cutting-edge toxicological methods and research findings. Additionally, you will have a unique opportunity to network with your guide, their colleagues, and fellow trainees.

Interested graduate students and postdoctoral scientists can sign up through March 1 by selecting scientific topics of interest. You will be contacted by a member of the SOT Postdoctoral Assembly once your group assignment has been made. Poster Tour groups will meet at their designated start time at the Poster Tour Board, which is located in the lobby near Registration (Level 2 of the Salt Palace Convention Center).

On your Poster Tour, your group will join your guide to:

  • Visit a minimum of three posters selected by your guide
  • Have an interactive discussion on the topic of interest and choice of posters
  • Identify with your guide and tour group the outstanding features of the work, as well as the “next steps” in that body of research
  • Network with other group members

Both guides and trainees from previous years report very positive outcomes—sharing expertise, networking with the expert and colleagues, and obtaining advice on research and careers. Sign up now to secure a spot, as there is a limited number of slots!

We look forward to seeing you in Salt Lake City!
