Southern California Society of Toxicology Regional Chapter Members,

I’m excited to serve as the President of the SCCSOT Regional Chapter for the 2023–2024 term. Welcome to our new chapter members and new incoming regional chapter officers:

  • Tejas Lahoti, Vice President-Elect
  • Hemraj Dodiya, Councilor Esther
  • Omaiye, Postdoc Representative
  • Rajat Gupta, Graduate Student Representative

In 2022, we were able to return to an in-person regional chapter meeting, which was held in San Diego at the Campus Point Green Acres in October. At the 2023 National SOT meeting in Nashville, we co-hosted a networking event at Martin’s BBQ with the NorthEast Regional chapter.

This year also promises to be an exciting and active year for our chapter. Planning for the Fall 2023 meeting is underway. The meeting’s theme is Bench-to-Bedside and will be held at the Ionis Conference Center in Carlsbad, CA on October 11. Additionally, the committee is engaging the vibrant & varied scientific community in Southern California with mentoring and networking events for students, postdocs, and early career members, As the year progresses, we will be sending updates on activities as well as opportunities for travel awards at the local and national level. Please reach out to myself or other chapter officers for information on volunteering or with ideas for activities for our membership. I look forward to hearing from you!

Gina M. Yanochko-Hoffman, PhD, DABT
