See you at SOT booth #519!

We are looking forward to seeing you at SOT where our scientists will be making a number of presentations.  Ruth Roberts is the EUROTOX presenter in the great SOT-EUROTOX debate; come along Monday at 4.45PM and see if she can turn the audience against the motion that ‘NonClinical Toxicology Testing Predicts Clinical Outcome‘!  Paul Duffy and Richard Knight are presenting a poster that challenges the paradigm on chronic toxicity testing (P185 Wed AM) and Ruth is presenting a poster in collaboration with the ABPI on ‘Development and use of in vitro alternatives by the Pharmaceutical Industry‘ (P515 Mon PM).

Meantime, come and meet the team at booth #519!
