South Central Chapter—SOT

Testing samples

Welcome to the South Central Chapter-SOT website. The South Central Chapter (SCC) of SOT serves academic, government, and industrial toxicologists throughout the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and western Tennessee. Established in 1982, the SCC’s mission is to foster scientific exchange among those in the region involved in toxicological research and teaching plus its application to human and environmental risk assessment. To meet this goal, the SCC-SOT sponsors

  1. An annual fall meeting at alternating locations throughout the 5-state area
  2. An annual reception at the national SOT meeting
  3. Predoctoral student awards to foster research training

Details on our meetings are provided on the Events page. Chapter officers with their contact information are listed on the Officers page.

Further communication among SCC membership is achieved through publication of a biannual SCC Newsletter, which includes notices of regional seminars, position announcements, and news of professional accomplishments of SCC members plus opted pieces on contemporary toxicological issues and communications from the national SOT.
