Lake Ontario Regional Chapter of the Society of Toxicology

Welcome to the Lake Ontario Regional Chapter of the Society of Toxicology!

President’s Message

Dear Lake Ontario Regional Chapter Members,

A warm welcome to our new members and thank you to our existing members for your continued support of the Lake Ontario Regional Chapter (LORC).

LORC’s mission is to provide a professional networking forum for toxicologists in the geographical region of Southern Ontario and western New York. LORC’s primary objectives are to promote recruitment to the LORC, to promote connection to the broader community of toxicologists through community outreach to undergraduate and graduate students studying at universities in our region, and to promote continuing education through the presentation of symposia and other educational activities.

LORC’s ability to organize in-person networking opportunities has historically been challenging due to our chapter’s geographic reach, and the pandemic only magnified this difficulty. As the incoming LORC president, I am inviting our members to engage and get involved by providing feedback or innovative ideas as to how our community can grow, improve, and strengthen networking opportunities among toxicologists across the region as well as other communities. If you are interested in helping, please do not hesitate to reach out.

I am very much looking forward to working with the resolute and passionate executive team of the Chapter and its members to further LORC’s vision and goals.

Scientifically yours,

Theresa Repaso-Subang
LORC President
