December 1, 2017

This year Purdue is hosting for the first time, the Society of Toxicology – Ohio Valley Regional Chapter meeting. The meeting is on Friday Dec. 1 from 9-4:30pm in STEW 214. The meeting will feature a keynote lecture from Dr. Thomas Knudsen from the National Center for Computational Toxicology at the US EPA titled “Systems Toxicology and Computational Dynamics”, student and trainee platform and poster presentations, and a Lunch with an Expert session.
