President’s Message

Hello MRC/SOT members,

We hope you can join us for MRC/SOT fall virtual annual meeting entitled “New Approach Methodologies” on Friday, October 15 (9–12 pm CT). We look forward to presentations from Hans Raabe, MS; Fabio Urbina, PhD; Amy Avila, PhD; and Deidre Dalmas Wilk, PhD; as well as our student flash talks.

Please see our Meetings page for more details.

The Midwest Regional Chapter in collaboration with NorCal was proud to present the Toxicology Career Map: A Virtual Collaborative Workshop career outreach event endorsed by the SOT Education and Career Development Committee on Friday, October 1 from 11:00 am to 2:30 pm Central.

This virtual career workshop provided valuable insights to students, postdocs, and early career toxicologists for career opportunities within toxicology. Detailed meeting information can be found in this program booklet. Many thanks to our organizing committee members from MRC/SOT (Daniel Kougias, Charles Mattis, David Belair, Brian Chanas) and NorCal (Ray Zhang) for their efforts in executing this career outreach event. A special thanks to Daniel Kougias (Councilor, MRC/SOT) for drafting and compiling the program booklet. You may also view a recording of the workshop if you missed it.

On behalf of the MRC/SOT Executive Committee, I would like to thank you for the continued support of and interest in our regional chapter, particularly during this challenging pandemic year.

Kind regards,
Smita Salian-Mehta, PhD, DABT, ERT
President 2021–2022, MRC/SOT
