It is my great pleasure to invite all of you to the 11th International Congress of the Turkish Society of Toxicology (TST), which will be held in Antalya, Turkey between 02-05 November, 2022.
Our congress with the theme of “For a safe and healthy world” will highlight emerging developments in numerous areas of toxicology. It has been over a year since the COVID-19 pandemic was first reported, and despite precautionary measures and vaccines there are still new waves occurring. COVID-19 has alerted the world to the fact that health and wellbeing is a priority and has also heightened the respect and recognition of the heroic work of healthcare personnel. Through our convening, we hope to share lessons and effective strategies for containing the pandemic. The scientific programme will also consist of plenary lectures, and sessions covering many topics such as, ecotoxicology, environmental toxicology, endocrine disrupters, metal toxicity, molecular toxicology, genotoxicity, food safety, regulatory toxicology, alternative methods, and risk assessment. Many short communications, oral and poster presentations will be also held for early career researchers. The scientific programme will provide the opportunity for all kind of attendees to learn about recent developments in toxicology. The Congress is a continuation of the series of traditional TST meetings, including meetings in Ankara (1987 and 2009) in Antalya (1997, 2006, 2012) and in Izmir (2015). Our Congress will provide an important national and international platform for sharing and discussing the latest developments with professionals scientifically.
During the meeting, you will have the opportunity to learn more about Antalya, which is the most visited touristic province of Turkey’s Mediterranean coast. The area has witnessed many historical changes; you can enjoy the charming atmosphere and the stunning view of the sea.
We invite you to attend TST2022 in the hope of carrying out a scientifically and socially satisfying, congruent congress. On behalf of the Organizing and the Scientific Committees, I wish to express our gratitude to all the speakers, oral and poster presenters who will share their knowledge with us and also to all of you who will participate in advance.
Looking forward to meeting you all at TST2022!
Prof. Dr. Nursen BAŞARAN
President of TST
