As we’ve all experienced, the global pandemic has informed many new ways that we effectively engage to share science. This is especially true in the event space for our meeting. I am pleased to announce some enhancements that we are making to the 2022 SOT Annual Meeting and ToxExpo that will enable SOT to present the best research available to as wide an audience as possible.

First, the abstract submission deadline is being extended to Wednesday, December 1, to allow more time for research completion. We have decided to make this new deadline the deadline that we take forward for future years because giving our community more time to submit can maximize opportunities for the newest findings in our field to be considered each year.

While I look forward to seeing all of you in person between March 27–March 31, 2022, in San Diego, we recognize that travel restrictions and health concerns remain for many in our community. For this reason, SOT will provide enhanced in-person meeting features that will enable remote participation in this year’s event. Details are still being finalized for this aspect of the meeting, but our goal is to ensure that those on-site in San Diego and others spanning the globe will be able to connect and engage in robust scientific presentations and discussions throughout the event.

SOT Council looks forward to seeing many of you in San Diego in March and will continue to explore and incorporate new enhancements to the meeting along the way.
