Most Recent IST Pan American Section Meeting

The 12th Congress of the Pan-American Section of IST is scheduled for Miami, USA, September 18-23, 2016. The 11th Pan-American Section Congress, Hotel Real International was held at the Casa Grande Hotel, Guaruja, Sa Paulo, Brazil, November 3rd to 8th, 2013, in association with the Brazilian Society of Toxinology. This was a large meeting with a very busy scientific program in an enjoyable setting. It was wonderful to again cohost a meeting with our Brazilian colleagues in their native country and to witness their energy and enthusiasm for toxinology.
