EUROTOX 2018 Brussels - an absolute success














With more than 1,400 participants from 61 nations, 67 exhibitors, and nearly 750 abstracts, 2018 EUROTOX Brussels held September 2-5, 2018 was an absolute success.

Thank you to all congress participants, EUROTOX members, scientific partners, exhibitors, sponsors, and the local organising committee chaired by Prof. Dominique Lison and Dr. Miranda Cornet,  for making this congress possible. 

"Toxicology Out of the Box” was the congress's theme, and the chance to deliver a really innovative, forward-looking and imaginative scientific programme which did not disappoint. In addition to offering attractive lectures and sessions with well-balanced inputs from academia, industry and regulators, the congress provided a wealth of opportunities for excursions, gastronomy and leisure activities.

Photos of the event will be posted on the congress website soon.
