Discover why the ACT Annual Meeting has become the preferred venue for practicing toxicologists!

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!
