In addition to the outstanding scientific program, numerous special events are scheduled. Please visit the Annual Symposium website to review the preliminary program and to make hotel reservations at the Red Rock Resort, our meeting venue, as soon as possible to ensure availability and to take advantage of the early registration fee.

Call for Abstracts 

Abstract Submission Deadline: March 30
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.
