The SOT Virtual Meeting Experience

Just as no two SOT members are 100% alike, no two Annual Meeting attendees (whether in-person or virtual) have the same expectations or goals.

The Virtual 2021 SOT Annual Meeting and ToxExpo will provide a multitude of experiences.

Experience #1

Just the Science, Please

For those who like to attend Scientific Sessions and then have some introspective, quiet time.

65+ Featured and Scientific Sessions

Presented just as they would be in person with individual presentations followed by live question-and-answer sessions with questions submitted through an online chat feature—no camera or speaking required!

1,000+ Poster Presentations

With poster authors providing up to eight minutes of audio narrative regarding their research and live Poster Sessions for direct questions and answers

~40 Exhibitor-Hosted Sessions

Allowing attendees to discover the latest technology, innovations, and services available to the toxicology community


Updated regularly and featuring interviews with leading scientists and short films on toxicology-related research, programs, and organizations

Experience #2

Connecting with Others

For those who look forward to the hallway interactions, receptions, and other social encounters.
