From: Rob Reedijk

I am happy to announce that we have extended the poster submission deadline for OpenTox USA 2017, which will take place at the Searle Conference Center, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina. We have always had a strong participation from Young Scientists, Principal Investigators and industry researchers presenting posters at OpenTox USA. This is a great opportunity to not only participate in some stimulating toxicology and risk assessment sessions, but to also have your poster be part of an important and meaningful conference.

I am also pleased to announce the program for the OpenTox USA 2017 which is now almost complete. Full details are available here:

The goal of the meeting is to discuss and develop important components for driving 21st century approaches to predictive toxicology and safety assessment forward. We assume that collaboration driven by an open global platform and open standards will be a key success factor. Integrating heterogenous evidence supported by a common knowledge framework and ecosystem of tools and partners will enable practical application, judgements and decisions including industrial application and regulatory acceptance.

While the cost of attending is quite low for everyone, we have made it particularly affordable for students---In fact, we urge you to join OpenTox which will reduce your registration fee even further!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Yours sincerely,

Rob Reedijk
