WuXi AppTec is proud to be a Diamond Supporter of the 60th Annual Meeting of the Society of Toxicology (SOT) and ToxExpo March 12–26, 2021. We will be located at Booth #2211.

SOT is the leading toxicology conference as it provides the most complete and in-depth coverage of toxicology. More than 6,500 toxicologists from more than 50 countries attend. Toxicologists can explore lessons learned and share scientific findings and novel approaches with other toxicologists at this annual event, which is designed to showcase the year’s latest in research.

The SOT Annual Meeting also includes the ToxExpo, which is the largest exhibition dedicated to toxicology and the biomedical sciences. ToxExpo features many exhibitors who lead the industry in developing cutting-edge products, services, and technology to benefit the toxicology community.


Plan a visit to our virtual booth and schedule time to speak with one of our subject matter experts in the area of drug development lab testing or medical device lab testing. We will be located at Booth #2211.
