These intrepid reporters were everywhere, from the continuing education courses on Sunday to symposium sessions and from trainee discussions with our guest lecturers to poster sessions on the ToxExpo floor. What resulted from their efforts were more than 50 blog posts illuminating the wonderful discussions and presentations that were occurring throughout the meeting so that even those not in attendance—or those in attendance, but unable to attend a specific session—were able to experience this year’s meeting.

While these reporters’ names appeared as bylines on pieces throughout the meeting, we wanted to take some time and recognize them here for their extraordinary efforts, as each wrote multiple pieces throughout the meeting and often delivered them within hours of sessions’ completions to bring you the action as quickly as possible. We are indebted to their grace under pressure!
