ApconiX at SOT!

We had a fabulous first SOT with the new company.  All our colleagues old and new were so interested to hear about we offer and the successes we have enjoyed in the first few months.  What a great ApconiX team effort creating the booth, the literature and the Pandora’s box chocolate giveaway!    We had a lot of interest in our posters ‘Development and use of in vitro alternatives by the Pharmaceutical Industry‘ and ‘Target organ profiles in toxicity studies supporting human dosing: does severity progress with longer duration of exposure?‘    I also had fun in the SOT debate arguing against the motion ‘NonClinical Toxicology Testing Predicts Clinical Outcome‘! It was declared a draw; lets see what happens when I argue for the motion at EUROTOX September 2016.
