NC SOT 2013 Spring Meeting Presentation Opportunities
All presenters must register for the meeting. The online registration deadline is February 20, 2013.
Student Competitors: Please contact Brenda Faiola if you have questions about your NC SOT student membership status.
For the Second Year in a Row! Student Platform Competition
Four selected graduate students will have the opportunity to have a platform presentation judged for a Best Student Platform Award. From submitted abstracts, members of the NC SOT Executive Committee will select up to four students to give platform presentations (10–15 minutes in length) at the spring meeting. All platform presentations will be judged at the meeting and one presenter will be selected to receive the Best Student Platform Award (cash prize!). You must be an NC SOT student member to have your abstract selected and platform presentation judged. Please email Jamie DeWitt your platform Title, Authors, Affiliations, and Abstract by Monday, February 4, 2013. Please write “student platform competition” in the subject line of your email. Please follow SOT abstract guidelines. Abstracts selected for platform presentations will demonstrate outstanding clarity in methodology/approach, uniqueness/creativity, thoroughness of investigation, soundness of judgment in interpreting results, and relevance.
You will receive notification of your abstract’s status by Friday, February 8, 2013.
If NOT selected, you will automatically be entered into the Student Poster Competition unless you do not wish to present a poster at the spring meeting.

The Research Triangle Park Drug Metabolism Discussion Group
Thursday, February 28, 2013, 10:00 AM–6:00 PM
Innovations in Models and Methods to Predict Drug Metabolism and Toxicity
Abstract: The predictive value of in vitro methods to predict drug-drug interactions has led to fewer failures of candidate drugs due to unsatisfactory pharmacokinetic properties in subsequent clinical trials. Toxicity and lack of efficacy now predominate as causes of clinical failures. New in vitro and in vivo methods are being developed to help predict toxicities at early stages of discovery and include broad-based assays in programs such as ToxCast and Tox21, humanized mouse models that produce circulating levels of human metabolites and plasma proteins, and gene responses in zebrafish that predict phenotypic responses in humans. These new models and methods are anticipated to increase successes in clinical trials of candidate therapeutics.

2012 Research Triangle Park (RTP) Rodent Pathology Course
This is the 6th state-of-the-art biennial course that will focus on fundamental and emerging issues of rodent pathology. The first five courses were a raging success: Reproductive Pathology (2002), Neuropathology (2004), Cardiopulmonary Pathology (2006), Immunopathology (2008), and Hepatobiliary Pathology (2010); each with about 150 attendees. The course showcases local North Carolina expertise as well as speakers from around the nation and world. It is designed to provide useful information on current issues and techniques in rodent pathology to research and diagnostic pathologists, pathologists-in-training, and interested members of the research community.
“Bridging the Gap” STEM Education Conference
October 23–24, 2012
Bridging the Gap: Uniting K–16 STEM Education is a revolutionary conference about science, technology, engineering and math education in North Carolina. It will bring together education, industry, government and informal science groups. By exchanging ideas, increasing communication and sharing resources, we can put educators in a better position to serve students and the public. The goal is to strengthen K–12 and college STEM education throughout North Carolina.
