STP 38th Annual Symposium—Call for Abstracts and Student Travel Awards


Call for Abstracts and Student Travel Awards 


"When asked if I am pessimistic or optimistic about the future, my answer is always the same: if you look at the science about what is happening on earth and aren't pessimistic, you don't understand the data. But if you meet the people who are working to restore this earth and the lives of the poor, and you aren't optimistic, you haven't got a pulse." — Martin Keogh, Hope Beneath Our Feet: Restoring Our Place in the Natural World.

Join your colleagues and friends at the STP 38th Annual Symposium to be held at Raleigh Convention Center in Raleigh, North Carolina, June 22-27, 2019. The theme for the 2019 Annual Symposium is "Environmental Toxicologic Pathology and One Health" and promises to be another dynamic meeting with excellent scientific sessions, continuing education courses, and many networking opportunities. I encourage you to visit the Annual Symposium website to review the preliminary information and to complete your registration and hotel reservations early.
