Aloha! IUTOX and the Society of Toxicology, USA (SOT) are pleased to announce the next triennial International Congress of Toxicology (ICT) to be held July 15–18, 2019, at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. This will be the first ICT in the United States since ICT VI in 1995.
The Scientific Program Committee is looking forward to working with the IUTOX and other societies to create an inclusive and diverse program that highlights excellence in science and practice of toxicology around the Globe. We will ensure the balance of interests of different countries and world regions. It is imperative that the attendees feel that scientific sessions and continuing education courses are informative, inspiring and present strategies that can be implemented to improve human and environmental health in countries with both robust and developing research and regulatory enterprises. We wish to serve as a global forum for the exchange of ideas that can create impacts at all time scales, create lasting partnerships, and lead to measurable elevation of the competency of the toxicologists globally.
SOT is looking forward to welcoming you to the beautiful state of Hawaii! Please mark the ICTXV meeting on your calendar!
Dr. William Slikker Jr, Chair of Organizing Committee
