The 61st Annual Meeting of the Society of Toxicology will be held 27-31 March 2022 in San Diego, California with livestream options for remote participation.
This year’s meeting will include all the traditional hallmarks—2,000+ scientific presentations across 70+ sessions; 250 exhibitors with products and services in the ToxExpo; and scores of networking and social events. This year’s meeting will also feature a key new element that will enhance the meeting experience for all. Registrants not traveling to the meeting can watch all the Featured and Scientific Sessions live through the SOT Event App or Online Planner. Of note, all registrants can access these same sessions through on-demand recordings that will be available in the SOT Event App and Online Planner after their conclusion. These on-demand videos will be viewable to registrants through July 31, 2022.
