On behalf of the American College of Toxicology and Council, it is my pleasure to invite you to attend the 41st Annual Meeting, November 15–18, 2020, at the JW Marriott in Austin, Texas—the “Live Music Capital of the World”!
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. These November gatherings bring together a community of toxicologists at small venues conducive to idea exchange, 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, a welcome reception, the popular poster session reception, an awards ceremony and luncheon, distinguished plenary speakers, and numerous professional networking events.
Please join me in Austin and discover why the ACT Annual Meeting has become the preferred venue for practicing toxicologists.
There’s always something playing in Austin, the Texas capital and Live Music Capital of the World®. As the gateway to the Texas Hill Country, Austin offers a cosmopolitan downtown with nearly 200 live music venues, urban trails, distinctive dining, historical attractions, and more.
