Message from the President October 2013
The Officers of the Society met recently and put in place plans for revitalising the Newsletter and improving communication with and between members. Details to follow; please watch this space.
Arrangements are now being finalised for the 2014 Annual Congress. This will be held in London at Plaisterers’ Hall at One London Wall. The dates are Monday April 28th and Tuesday April 29th; please make sure that these are in your diary. There is in place a very rich scientific programme, including a Continuing Education Programme focusing on Reproductive Toxicology. The main body of the Programme includes two Symposia (Evolution of Toxicology and the Impact on Chemical Risk Assessment and The Development and Safety of Stem Cell Therapies), both populated by outstanding speakers. In addition, there will be a Hot Topic Lecture (Environmental Endocrine Disruptors) given by Professor Richard Sharpe. One highlight of the Congress will be the presentation by Professor Sir Colin Berry of the Paton Prize Lecture.
So, I urge you to attend the Congress next April and look forward to seeing you there. Full details will be posted shortly. Please note that Registration will be available from December 2nd.
Finally, the usual reminder, if you have comments or suggestions about any aspect of the Work of the Society then please feel free to contact me or another member of the Executive Committee.
Professor Ian Kimber
President British Toxicology Society
