Join your colleagues and friends at the STP 40th Annual Symposium, a Virtual Event to be held June 28–30, 2021. The theme for the 2021 Annual Symposium is "Toxicologic Pathology Relevant to Pediatric Populations" and promises to be another dynamic meeting with excellent scientific sessions, career development and continuing education courses, and many networking opportunities provided in a user-friendly virtual platform. In addition to the outstanding scientific program, numerous special events are scheduled.  You are encouraged to visit the Annual Symposium website to review the preliminary information and complete your registration as soon as possible to take advantage of the reduced early-bird registration rates.

Call for Abstracts 

Abstract Submission Deadline: April 15

Abstracts must fit within the scope of the Society, whose mission is to be an international leader for improvement of human, animal, and environmental health using an interdisciplinary scientific approach based in pathology and toxicology. All meeting attendees are encouraged to submit a poster for the meeting.

Contents of the poster presentations should pertain in some way to the field of toxicologic pathology but are not limited to “classic” toxicity studies/issues technologies. Naturally occurring toxicities (including poisonous plants), in any species, as well as spontaneous and infectious diseases of species used in toxicity studies, are welcome, as are mechanistic in vitro and molecularly-oriented studies. Studies in alternative species such as fish are also encouraged. See How to Write an Abstract for STP Poster Sessions for more information.
