Thank you to all who helped make our fifth meeting the best yet. Attendees were treated to plenary lectures on read across by Dr. Thomas Hartung of Johns Hopkins University and on stem cells in toxicology by Dr. Mahendra Rao of Mahendra Rao, LLC. Sixteen presentations showcasing advances in the field of toxicology, as well as a mentoring session with young scientists, a poster session, and dynamic panel discussion rounded out the program.

We were honored to host the wife and brother of the late Dr. Edward Carney to award the 2nd annual Ed Carney Award for Predictive Toxicology, which went to Emma Bowers for her presentation Modeling a complex in vivo response in vitro: Exploring heterogeneity and mechanisms associated with ozone adaptation. After winning the William and Eleanor Cave Award for his career achievements in in vitro toxicology, Dr. Ray Tice established the Tox21 Student Award, which will be given for the next five years. This year, the award went to Ellen Garcia for her presentation Single-cell analysis reveals that silver nanoparticle exposure leads to multi-nucleation through defective cell division.

Finally, members elected Ellen Berg to the Board of Directors
