EUROTOX 2018 was a great success with many excellent sessions, posters and keynote lectures. There were more than 1400 attendees from >50 countries giving an outstanding opportunity for networking and learning.
Highlights included the Merit award lecture from Sam Cohen (University of Nebraska) who talked about “Cell proliferation and carcinogenesis” and the HESI CITE lecture from Manasi Nandi (King’s College London) who explained to a fascinated audience how to use “Maths and big data in medicine.”
Paul Duffy’s talk on repurposing Psilocybins attracted a lot of attention as it illustrated the innovative approaches that can be taken to developing new therapeutic options.
Mike Morton’s talk was very well attended. It addressed recent innovations in delivering and interpreting ion channel data for assessing cardiovascular safety.
Ruth Roberts gave the keynote address on the final day entitled “Drug discovery: if you want to see different results, do things differently”
The conference dinner was held at the amazing Autoworld in Brussels and we raised a glass to Professor Heather Wallace as she starts her 2-year team as President of the Society. Congratulations Heather! We look forward to working with you and the whole EUROTOX organisation to support the mission of fostering toxicology across Europe.
