A follow up meeting of members of EUROTOX EC and SOT Council members (pictured below) was held during the annual SOT in Baltimore. John Morris, SOT President, reiterated our goals and updated us on progress. The exchange of the SOT Distinguished Scholar and the EUROTOX Bo Holmstedt Memorial Lecture Award was agreed. The first EUROTOX Bo Holmstedt Memorial Lecture will be on the 2018 SOT programme, while the first SOT Distinguished Scholar Lecture at EUROTOX will take place during the 2018 Brussels congress. Furthemore, the group is working on a joint position paper for publication in Toxicology Reports, an open access journal.
"We will hold another informal meeting with SOT Council members attending the EUROTOX 2017 Bratislava congress in September", confirmed EUROTOX President-Elect, Prof. Heather Wallace.
