A Message from the President of IUTOX, Daniel Acosta Jr. (September 2011)
Dear Friends and Fellow Toxicologists,
I am very pleased to report that there was a very successful ICT XII meeting in Barcelona, with outstanding scientific sessions and wonderful days of food, entertainment and sightseeing in beautiful Barcelona. The Spanish Society of Toxicology (AETOX) is to be congratulated for its organization of the Congress and for the high quality of science presented—Muchas Gracias, Amigos Estimados! Equally exciting was the election and installation of the new members of the Executive Committee:
President: Dr. Daniel Acosta, Jr., USA
President-Elect: Dr. Herman Autrup, DENMARK
Vice President: Dr. Jun Kanno, JAPAN
Secretary-General: Dr. Elaine Faustman, USA
Treasurer: Dr. Heidi Foth, GERMANY
Dr. Mumtaz Iscan, TURKEY
At the Closing Ceremony I was able to make a short presentation on the aims and goals for the next three years:
I look forward to working with all of you to achieve these goals and to further the advancement of IUTOX.
One of the messages we have heard from you is the importance of IUTOX to coordinate the registration of qualified toxicologists based on guidelines established by an international taskforce. Towards this effort, we are inviting all member societies to nominate potential individuals as contacts for the following purpose:
IUTOX will facilitate the work of this International taskforce in achieving its goals and reporting on progress in late 2011.
I look forward to working with every Member Society on this important initiative.
Daniel Acosta Jr.
