STP Abstract Guidelines

All meeting attendees are encouraged to submit a poster for the meeting.

Contents of the poster presentations should pertain in some way to the field of toxicologic pathology but are not limited to “classic” toxicity studies/issues technologies. Naturally occurring toxicities (including poisonous plants), in any species, as well as spontaneous and infectious diseases of species used in toxicity studies, are welcome, as are mechanistic in vitro and molecularly-oriented studies.Studies in alternative species such as fish are also encouraged. See How to Write an Abstract for STP Poster Sessions for more information.
