UI Well Represented at Central States Society of Toxicology 2009 Annual Meeting

25 students and faculty of the University of Iowa attended the annual meeting of the Central States Society of Toxicology held October 1-2, 2009 in Ames, IA.

We proudly report that of 4 possible awards for outstanding presentations, three went to UI students and postdocs. Congratulations to: Erin Allen of Jon Doorn's lab, Iza Korwel who works with Hans Lehmler, and Wie Xie who works with Gabriele Ludewig.

Related to the success of the CS-SOT and to our new Toxicology Program, the number of toxicologists in IOWA has grown in the last several years:

SOT Directory Year Number of SOT members in IOWA
2006-2007 18
2007-2008 21
2008-2009 37
2009-2010 45

This growth is due in no small part to the support of, and the influence of, the IDGP in Human Toxicology here at the University of Iowa.
