Greetings from Saskatoon, SK

A very warm welcome to ISTA 20 Saskatoon on behalf of the Organizing Committee!  2022 is a special year for the International Symposium on Toxicity Assessment as it will return to its origins in Canada for its 20th birthday.  The meeting will be held at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon between August 15 and 18, 2022, and we are excited to announce a week full of exceptional science, networking, and social activities.  ISTA 20 will be dedicated to the memory of Dr. Doris Au, who sadly passed away in 2020.  Doris was one of our greatest champions and we pledge that her passion for science and ISTA will live on through the Symposium (Au 2015). We are also proud to announce the Dr. Doris Au Student Excellence Award in Toxicity Testing that will be awarded for the first time at the ISTA 20 meeting in Saskatoon. For more information about ISTA 20, see About Us
