The BTS Annual Congress 2018 will be held from 16th – 18th April 2018, at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead, UK.
The British Toxicology Society was founded as a natural successor to the Toxicology Club (1971-1979). The aim was to provide a discussion forum for scientific problems and issues related to toxicology. The Society was constituted formally in April 1979 with 200 members. One key role for the Society is to host the Annual Congress where toxicologists from all areas of the discipline come together to participate in learning and discuss research in toxicology.
As part of the congress, Toxicology Research Deputy Editor, Rebecca Brodie, will being giving a talk on how to get published. This will offer valuable insight into the world of science publishing and should not be missed.
