The Hispanic Organization of Toxicologists (HOT) is an all-inclusive Special Interest Group within the Society of Toxicology (SOT) comprised of professionals, predominantly of Hispanic origin, with expertise in scientific areas related to Toxicology. The HOT membership is diverse, with representatives from industry, academia, government, and commercial organizations within the United States (US) and numerous Ibero-America countries. It serves as a focal point for interaction, fellowship, networking, and professional development among Hispanic Toxicologists in the US and international Spanish and Portuguese-speaking scientific communities. The HOT operates in compliance with Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, entailing HOT as a tax-exemption organization eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions.
Individual and/or corporate sponsorship will enable HOT to meet its initiative to bring together Hispanic Toxicologists from the US and Ibero-America countries at the SOT Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah (March 10–14, 2024) for networking, mentoring, and outreach efforts.
Our annual success in this endeavor has always been due to the generous contributions of our dedicated sponsors. Your sponsorship will sustain the HOT Mentoring Activity and Luncheon, and the HOT Evening Reception that will be hold during the 2024 SOT Annual Meeting. Both activities will help to increase the organization's visibility to SOT and HOT members, annual meeting attendees, and the international Spanish and Portuguese-speaking scientific communities.
Any amount is welcome; for organizations, the recommended starting donation is $500.
Your sponsorship will be recognized during the HOT Evening Reception at the SOT Annual Meeting, on the HOT website, Facebook page, and our major media outlet, the Toxenlaces newsletter, throughout 2024. In addition, Toxenlaces will dedicate a half-page space to publicize your company's products and/or services.

The Hispanic Organization of Toxicologists is comprised of toxicologists of Iberoamerican (Latin-American countries, Spain, and Portugal) heritage united to promote interaction, fellowship, networking, and professional development opportunities to its membership. These opportunities are of particular importance to this group because scientists of Hispanic origin have traditionally been underrepresented in the field of toxicology, owing to several factors, including fewer scholarship opportunities.
The HOT Endowment Fund was created with the goal of promoting the work of up-and-coming HOT members. Each year, monies generated from the Endowment Fund will be used to sponsor Travel Awards to undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral fellows, allowing them to present their work at the Annual Meetings of the Society of Toxicology. These sponsored awards will provide exceptional toxicologists among the HOT membership the opportunity to develop skills and connections that will serve them throughout their careers.
Donors of the HOT Endowment Fund will provide financial support that will be vital to advancing science and investing in the future of Toxicology. If you are interested in making a donation to the HOT Endowment Fund, please use the online giving system or download the Donation form. The Society of Toxicology is exempt from income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. In accordance with the Internal Revenue Code, contributions to 501(c)(3) organizations are deductible contributions for income tax purposes.
