Congress website goes live

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I am happy to announce that the website for the EUROTOX2021 Copenhagen congress is now online.

The EUROTOX2021 congress, organised by the Danish Society for Toxicology and Pharmacology in conjunction with EUROTOX, will take place September 26-29, 2021 in Copenhagen, Denmark. 

The congress theme “Toxicology of the next generation – Combined efforts in the quest for safer chemicals and medicines” is reflected in the congress programme. This covers a variety of topics dealing with the safety of drugs and environmental chemicals, new and emerging technologies, personalised medicine, human health effects caused by exposure to chemicals as well as safety issues arising from climate change.
Over the upcoming months, the website will be updated with further congress details including the scientific program, and information regarding registration and hotel accommodations.

The abstract submission platform will open Monday, November 2, 2020. The deadline for abstract submission will be Wednesday, March 31, 2021.

Opportunities for exhibition and sponsorships are currently available. Interested companies and organisation can visit the exhibition and sponsorship section of the congress website. 

Please know that the Executive Committee, Scientific Program Committee, Local Organising Committee, and Professional Congress Organiser are working diligently to welcome you to Copenhagen next year, and make EUROTOX 2021 congress a successful event.

Thank you for your continuous support, and I wish you and your families a relaxing and safe summer.

Heather M Wallace

President of EUROTOX
