The Congress major theme is “Toxicology and Global Sustainability”. This meeting will offer a forum for sharing basic and applied research in Toxicology and is aimed to convene international scientists to present their results related to the exposure to toxic agents, adverse effects, mechanisms of toxicity, preventive alternatives, normativity, etc, to strengthen the science-policy interface to foster the progress towards sustainability. The diverse sessions will provide a forum to exchange information, to establish collaborations and networking, and to discuss cutting-edge research.
As a Latin American country, Mexico is proud of the hospitality of its people and be home of 27 UNESCO´s World Heritage Sites, and it is extremely honored to host the XIV International Congress of Toxicology. Merida is known as the “White City”, and is considered as the cultural and tourist capital of the Mayan World. In addition, Merida is close to many delighting places, such as beautiful beaches of the Caribbean, small towns with colonial flavors, and the most important archeological sites of the Mayan culture: Chichén Itzá, Uxmal, Mayapán and Kabah.
