Toxicological Concerns in Older Adults, a Neglected Majority
(SOT Contemporary Concepts in Toxicology (CCT) Meeting)

Saturday, March 10
8:30 AM–5:30 PM
Henry B. González Convention Center (Separate Registration Required)

Hosted by: Society of Toxicology and Scientific Liaison Coalition

The primary goal of this meeting is to increase understanding of the changes associated with the aging process and discuss ways in which these changes may influence toxicity outcomes. The discussions will have potential impact on the development of toxicological assessments, the drug development process, and clinical practice.

Building a Better Epithelium
(SOT Contemporary Concepts in Toxicology (CCT) Meeting)

Saturday, March 10
8:30 am–6:30 pm
Henry B. González Convention Center (Separate Registration Required)

This meeting will provide opportunities for toxicologists that are interested in, or currently using, organotypic models and technology developers to meet face-to-face to foster collaborations that will move the field forward. In addition to presenting the state of the science, this conference will include moderated discussion sessions for attendees and speakers to discuss advances, future needs and data gaps, and applications of these models in the investigation into the cellular and molecular mechanisms of toxicity. The presentations will focus around developments in in vitro organotypic airway, skin, and intestinal epithelial models that may inform mechanistic understanding by toxicologists across academia, government, and industry. Further, presentations will discuss practical considerations when incorporating these tools into next generation in vitro research and safety evaluation.

Updates on Activities Related to 21st-Century Toxicology and Related Efforts: Invited Presentations and Open Microphone

Thursday, March 15
12:30 pm–4:00 pm
Grand Hyatt Bowie A-B

An SOT Satellite Meeting Organized by the Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing and the Human Toxicology Project Consortium

After the 2018 SOT Annual Meeting and ToxExpo, you are invited to join the Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT) and The Human Toxicology Project Consortium (HTPC) for their annual satellite meeting on advancing 21st-century toxicology activities and related efforts. The satellite meeting provides an informal setting in which interested stakeholders can update each other on these important topics.

The meeting will feature a number of invited presentations, but also leave time for an “open microphone” segment in which participants are welcome to make announcements or give brief presentations on germane topics, with or without a few slides.
