ACVP|ASVCP|STP Combined Annual Meeting—October 17–21, 2015

The American College of Veterinary Pathologists, American Society for Veterinary Clinical Pathology, and Society of Toxicologic Pathology invite you to attend the 2015 ACVP/ASVCP/STP Combined Annual Meeting. This meeting will be held October 17–21, 2015, at the Minneapolis Convention Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota. Take this opportunity to network, collaborate, share, and discuss common scientific interests with your colleagues from three esteemed professional organizations. The program will include a mix of joint and separate curricula, including scientific sessions, continuing education courses, symposia, workshops, career development, receptions, and other events. For additional information, please visit the meeting website.

IUTOX and SBTox To Be Held in Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil—
Abstract Deadline June 30, 2015

IUTOX (International Union of Toxicology) and the Brazilian Society of Toxicology (SBTox) are pleased to announce the upcoming Congress of Toxicology in Developing Countries (9th CTDC) and XIX Brazilian Congress of Toxicology (XIX CBTox) that will be held November 7–10, 2015, at the Convention Center in the city of Natal, in the state of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil.  This meeting provides a unique forum to update your knowledge of toxicological sciences in relation to problems experienced by developing countries and to share your work with national and international toxicologists. The Congress also provides the opportunity to establish and expand networks with partners at the national and international level and to present and discuss your research results with the scientific toxicology community.  For additional information, to register, and to submit an abstract, please visit the Congress website. IUTOX is offering travel awards to encourage and support participation of researchers, students, and scientists from developing countries.  An application and more information about these awards is provided on IUTOX website.

Cellular & Molecular Mechanisms of Toxicity GRC—
Meeting Applications Due July 12, 2015

The Cellular & Molecular Mechanisms of Toxicity Gordon Research Conference— Mechanistic Toxicology: The Path Forward will be held August 9–14, 2015, at the Proctor Academy, Andover, New Hampshire.  This conference is a premier forum for showcasing the latest, most innovative advances in mechanistic toxicological research.  For the 2015 conference, the organizers have assembled a group of world-leading experts working in areas of investigation that are highly relevant to environmental, industrial, and pharmaceutical toxicology, with the goal of incorporating research on the mechanistic basis of disease into risk decision-making. Emerging technologies in mechanistic toxicology and computational, 3D, and in vivo modeling and systems biology approaches to assessing risk to human health will be highlighted as well as the microbiome, the inflammasome, epigenetics, carcinogenesis, and stem cells in toxicological research. For the second time, a Gordon Research Seminar on Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms of Toxicity will precede the conference. This provides an expanded opportunity for trainees and young scientists to be exposed to cutting-edge science and to network with their future colleagues in the field. For additional information, please visit the conference website.

FutureTox III: Bridges for Translation: Transforming 21st Century Science into
Risk Assessment and Regulatory Decision-Making— November 19–20, 2015

FutureTox III: Bridges for Translation: Transforming 21st Century Science into Risk Assessment and Regulatory Decision-Making will be held November 19–20, 2015, at the Hilton Crystal City at Washington Reagan National Airport, Arlington, Virginia. This conference was developed by the Scientific Liaison Coalition (SLC) and associated stakeholders and follows the well-received FutureTox II Contemporary Concepts in Toxicology conference also initiated by the SLC. FutureTox III is focusing on building the high throughput risk assessment paradigm, taking the science of in vitro data and in silico models forward. Thus, the conference will explore the central question: What progress is being made to address challenges in applying and implementing the emerging “big data” toolbox for risk assessment and regulatory decision-making? The overarching objectives of the meeting are toward: Advancing the cornerstones for high-throughput risk assessment through exploration and discussions with multiple stakeholders; Taking 21st Century Toxicity Testing (TT21C) in vitro and in silico models forward while reducing reliance on animal testing; and Exploring progress and identifying challenges in implementing the emerging “big-data” toolbox for risk assessment and regulatory decision-making. The conference will include plenary sessions by invited speakers, a poster session, and topical breakout groups. For more information and to register, please visit the FutureTox III website.
