Professor Ruth Roberts, Dr Richard Knight, Dr Michael Morton, Dr Laurence Bishop, Dr James Sidaway, Dr Claire Sadler, Dr Kimberly Rockley, Simon Craige, and Dr Andrew Winkley will all be attending the 2022 SOT Annual Meeting and ToxExpo in San Diego in March.

Come and visit us at Booth # 2028.

Here we are at BioForward last September 2020 – only our second face to face conference since 2019.  We’re really hoping SOT goes ahead in person and look forward to meeting new friends, and old friends we haven’t seen in person for a very long time.

Relay the hERG story behind the whiskey shot glass and we’ll give you one free (empty of course – well almost) but with a chance of winning something very appropriate to fill the glass up with!  It won’t be too difficult – we’ve publish the story on the website.
