President’s Message

Hello MRC-SOT members,

The Midwest Regional Chapter is proud to present the 2019 Fall meeting and career outreach event. The meeting will take place on Friday, October 25th from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the Pyle Center, University of Wisconsin-Madison. The topic will focus on research efforts to protect human health.

Prior to the meeting, students and postdocs will also have the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of the drug discovery and development process by attending a tour at Exact Sciences at 9 am to 11:30 am on Oct 25th. The event will be open to 30 students and postdocs on a first-come-first-serve basis. The meeting will feature a panel discussion with representatives in industry and academia who work in the area of toxicology and human health. This is an excellent opportunity for students and trainees to learn about employment opportunities in toxicology.

The detailed meeting information, including registration, directions, and scientific program can be found in the newsletter. Many thanks to our President-Elect/Program Chair Chuck Mattis and Dr. Kira Light (Exact Sciences) for their efforts in coordinating the fall meeting and the career outreach event.

On behalf of the executive committee, I would like to thank you for the continued support of our regional chapter.

Thanks again,
Chad Vezina
