Please join the National Library of Medicine (NLM) for a special plenary session and recognition program to commemorate the 100th meeting of the Hazardous Substances Data Bank (HSDB) Scientific Review Panel (SRP).

The HSDB plenary program includes:
- History, current features and data science enhancements
- Internal data users: PubChem and WISER
- External data users: federal government, industry and academia
- Recognition of SRP service

This plenary session is open to the NIH community, as well as to those interested in learning more about HSDB and how it's used. It takes place Thursday, September 14, 2017 from 1-3pm at the Hilton Hotel, 1750 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852.
