The 2021 Annual Meeting of the North American Congress of Clinical Toxicology (Main Congress) will be held October 16-18, 2021. The meeting will be held in-person (with virtual option) in Atlanta, Georgia.  Preconference workshop dates are Tuesday, October 13 (ACMT Virtual Pre-Conference Symposium) and Wednesday, October 14 (AACT Virtual Symposium.)  NACCT is an excellent forum for the presentation of original research in the field of toxicology.

Abstracts and Meeting Structure
Sixteen oral presentations ("platforms") will be selected and will be delivered over 10 minutes followed by a 5-minute discussion.  Additionally, NACCT 2021 will feature Lightning Oral Sessions including approximately 12 research abstracts.  Print posters will generally be grouped by topic and presented during one of 3 sessions.
