The 2016 IVTS Annual Meeting will be held in Glasgow on 14-15 November at the Radisson BLU Hotel. The conference this year will focus upon in vitro approaches and methodologies in the key research areas of tissue engineering alternatives, systems pharmacology and nanotoxicology.

In addition to the world class speaker list, there are great opportunities for early career researchers to present via both oral and poster presentations.

For more information please go to the RegOline site.

Registration and abstract submission have now both closed. Bursaries have been allocated.

Please note that abstracts will be published in the journal Applied In Vitro Toxicology, the official media partner of our 2016 meeting. 

The IVTS also thank the following sponsors of the 2016 meeting;
