President's Message

On behalf of the American College of Toxicology and Council, it is my pleasure to invite you to attend the 41st Annual Meeting in November 2020. In view of our unique challenges associated with the global pandemic, this year’s meeting will be virtual, and we look forward to bringing Austin, Texas to you in a unique experience.

ACT is a global community of professional scientists representing the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, regulatory agencies, contract research organizations, academia, and consulting firms. The mission of the College is to educate, lead, and serve scientists by promoting the exchange of relevant information and perspectives on safety assessment and new developments related to applied toxicology.

The Annual Meeting is the heart of ACT. We value the opportunity to bring together a community of toxicologists for engaging in the exchange of ideas, professional networking, and continuing education. Our first-rate scientific sessions are member-driven, pharma-focused (though not pharma-exclusive) and organized to maximize learning opportunities. The welcoming and collegial atmosphere of the Annual Meeting is a hallmark of ACT.

The 41st Annual Meeting will include a wide-ranging scientific program, distinguished plenary speakers, the popular poster session, an awards ceremony, and numerous virtual professional networking events. We are developing engaging formats for all your favorite events!

We hope you’ll let us bring Austin to your home and give us the opportunity to show why the ACT Annual Meeting has become the preferred venue for practicing toxicologists!

Sincerely,

Lorrene A. Buckley, PhD, DABT, ATS
2019–2020 President

Important Announcement: ACT 41st Annual Meeting Going Virtual!

 

 

Dear ACT members and Annual Meeting attendees:

After careful consideration, the American College of Toxicology is announcing today that the 41st Annual Meeting will be held virtually this year to protect the health and safety of our community.

This was not an easy decision; however, control of the coronavirus pandemic is unresolved and likely to remain so for the foreseeable future. Recent reports of a spike in new cases and hospitalizations in a number of states in advanced phases of reopening are alarming and contributed to this decision. We cannot accept the risk of potential COVID-19 exposure of those in attendance at a face-to-face meeting.

Fortunately, the experience during the pandemic has sparked innovative digital and mobile platforms to deliver timely educational content that meets the needs of our scientific community. I want to assure you that ACT Council, along with our Contingency Planning Working Group and our Program and Education Committees, are hard at work reinventing our Annual Meeting into virtual sessions that you will find valuable, interactive, and engaging. While we won’t meet in person this year, we are still very much a community that will stay connected.

If you had already registered for the planned face-to-face Annual Meeting, you will be contacted by ACT staff in the coming weeks. The JW Marriott Austin will cancel all ACT guest room reservations made within the official ACT hotel block. You will be receiving a cancellation email directly from the JW Marriott Austin.

Stay tuned to the ACT website for updates and details about our virtual Annual Meeting scientific program, special events, and interactive exhibition hall and poster presentations. While the specific dates of the virtual meeting are still being finalized as the Program and Education Committees determine the optimal meeting format, we plan to utilize the original meeting dates and a few extra days in November as well.

Until we “meet” again, I wish you and your loved ones good health and well-being,

Lorrene A. Buckley, PhD, DABT, ATS
