The 49th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society of Toxicology

Welcome Message

The 49th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society of Toxicology (JSOT) will be held at the Sapporo Convention Center from June 30 (Thursday) to July 2 (Saturday), 2022.

The theme of the JSOT 2022 meeting is "One Health and Toxicology". One World One Health is a concept that considers the health of humans, animals, and the environment/ecosystem as "one health". Toxicology is an approach that links not only human and animal health, but also social and economic issues. We recognize that toxicology is an interdisciplinary field that brings together a wide range of experts and stakeholders, and the "One Health" approach advocated in Manhattan in 2004 is just that: an interdisciplinary practice. I would like to revisit the concept of "One Health" and its relationship to toxicology in order to overcome the challenges related to global health. In addition, in order to return to the basics of interdisciplinarity and to hear the opinions of people from as wide a range of fields as possible, the 49th Annual Meeting will be a completely open planning symposium. We look forward to your suggestions and participation in the symposium and events.
In Hokkaido, June is the beginning of early summer and a very refreshing season. Due to climate change in recent years, temperatures are rising even in Hokkaido, but it is one of the most comfortable times of the year. The 26th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society of Toxicology was held in Sapporo in 1999, and JSOT2022 is the first time in 23 years that the meeting has been held in Sapporo. As it has been a long time since the conference was held in Hokkaido, the secretariat will do our best to make it an enjoyable event for everyone.
We sincerely appreciate your understanding and support for this conference.

Mayumi Ishizuka
President of 49JSOT
