2023 SOT - Nanoscience and Advanced Materials Specialty Section Mixer & Awards

NAMSS in vitro

The 2023 Society of Toxicology (SOT) Conference Exhibition will take place in Nashville, Tennessee at the Nashville Music City Center from March 20th to the 22nd. Come to meet us at Booth 708 and 710!

During the SOT conference, we will be sponsoring the Nanoscience and Advanced Materials Specialty Section mixer. 

Pulmonary Physiology and Function – NAMSS-SCIREQ Special Award

Nanoscience and Advanced Materials Specialty Section of the Society of Toxicology is announcing two special awards this year. These awards are open to all the SOT members irrespective of the specialty section membership.

These awards will be given to student & postdoctoral researchers evaluating pulmonary physiology and functional alterations after environmental or occupational xenobiotic exposure.

1st Prize 1000$

2nd Prize 500$

Applicants should submit a one-page summary of their research relevant to the topic of the award and letter of support from their mentor.

Application Deadline 20th February 2023

Applications can be emailed to the NAMSS President Dr. Salik Hussain ([email protected])

In Vivo and In Vitro Smoke Exposure

We are proud to introduce our new expoCube, adding robust in vitro exposure to the automated inExpose system.

The expoCube provides a novel ALI (air liquid interface) culture exposure system, integrating with the inExpose’s existing exposure generators such as the integrated cigarette smoking robot and industry leading e-cigarette extensions.

The expoCube features:

  • Reproducibility: Efficient, uniform, and precise exposure of particulates onto target cells and tissues.
  • Precision: Optimized flow paths using advanced computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling.
  • Deposition: Patented thermophoresis, increasing the deposition efficiency of small particles without imparting unnatural electrostatic charges onto the aerosols.

The innovative design of the expoCube permits aerosol deposition profiles that are efficient, reproducible and translational.
