Traditional toxicological paradigms have relied on factors such as age, genetic polymorphisms, and disease status to identify variability in responsiveness to environmental toxicant exposure; however, these factors are neither sufficient to faithfully identify differentially responsive individuals, nor are they modifiable factors that can be leveraged to mitigate adverse health effects of toxicant exposures. A primary goal of this meeting is to feature new investigators, new technology, and new areas of concern, including potential effects on pollinators.
There will be numerous career development events designed specifically for students and new and early stage investigators. In particular, the organizing committee has focused on the two challenges that were considered to be of the highest importance in the field. Topics span organ systems and disease models and will include up-to-date thinking about how the AHR is relevant to the development and function of many organ systems, to numerous diseases, as well as to drug discovery and environmental health. The faculty consists of well-recognized experts in their field of study and most are Board Certified by the American Board of Toxicology (ABT). IUTOX is proud to present this meeting where toxicologists from around the world will share their recent findings with colleagues and other ICTXIV delegates. In particular, the committee has focused on the two challenges that were considered to be of the highest importance in the field.

There's USB 3.0, a microSD card reader, mini DisplayPort, and a cover that's also a keyboard. Other Linux distributions or releases are available by request, with volume commitment or engineering payment. VA is a quantitative measure of the ability to identify black symbols on a white background at a standardized distance as the size of the symbols is varied. In addition, specific examples of the use of these models in safety assessments will be presented.
Korchevskiy had the opportunity to tell the audience about the importance of toxicological professions and the priorities for the Society of Toxicology. For more information including continuing education and abstract submission, please visit the conference website.
We continue to identify ways to enhance the quality of our science and welcome feedback from our readers to guide us in this process. Rychlik, Allan Somers, and Pamella Tijerina led and inspired the students throughout the entire three-day program. An associated Gordon Research Seminar will be held in conjunction, led and organized by trainees, and featuring work in the area of genes, genetics, and genomics.
