The abstract submission site is open for FutureTox IV Progress to Maturity: Predictive Developmental and Reproductive Toxicology for Healthy Children, November 14–16, 2018, at the Westin Crystal City, Arlington, Virginia. This Society of Toxicology (SOT) Contemporary Concepts in Toxicology (CCT) conference is focused on bringing together basic, clinical, and regulatory scientists to bridge the translation from historical approaches to Tox21 implementation relative to risk assessment and regulatory decision-making for matters pertaining to developmental health, life stage progression, and the human reproductive cycle. The meeting also will look at implementing the 21st-century vision and regulatory considerations relevant to chemicals in the environment and medical products for guidance based on new results.

Abstract submission is open to all attendees, and there is no fee associated with submission. The submission deadline is Wednesday, September 26, 2018. Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars are encouraged to submit abstracts. Based on availability of funding, partial travel support will be provided to graduate students and postdoctoral scholars based on the merit of their submitted abstract and confirmation of their poster presentation at FutureTox IV. The travel support awards will be announced at the meeting. Recipients must be onsite to receive their award. Abstract acceptance notifications will occur by Wednesday, October 10, 2018. If your abstract is accepted, please consult and follow the SOT CCT meetings poster preparation and display instructions for preparing and displaying your poster.

The abstracts submissions for FutureTox IV should relate to the development, utilization, or translation of 21st-century methodologies and data (e.g., in vitro screening assays, in silico predictive models, and other novel technologies) focused on developmental and reproductive health outcomes. For additional details on topics and themes for this SOT CCT meeting, visit the Background section of the FutureTox IV website. Poster presentations will occur in the late afternoon of November 14 and November 15.
