Message from the President

Yara Cury



Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the Brazilian Society of Toxinology – SBTx, I would like to invite you to participate in our XVth Congress, to be held at São Pedro city (Hotel Fonte Colina Verde), SP, Brazil, from May 26 to 29, 2019.

The theme of the meeting is “Toxins and Venomous Animals: Paths, Impacts and World Insertion – Contribution from the 30 years of SBTx and from Brazilian Toxinology for Brazil and the World”.

The Congress will offer an exciting Scientific Program, which will cover a wide range of themes in the Toxinology field, including structural, molecular and clinical aspects. Important names from the Toxinology field, from Brazil and abroad, will be present in the event, participating in conferences, symposia and discussion panels. Also, based on the importance of studying natural toxins and the challenge of working with biodiversity, we are offering, during the congress, a course to learn more on strategies for valuing nature’s assets.  As our Society has just completed 30 years of activity, the SBTx XVth Congress will have a very unique taste. We have scheduled a special activity to celebrate SBTx anniversary. Furthermore, the congress will be an important opportunity to discuss, in a round table activity, what we want for the future of SBTx and for the Brazilian Toxinology.

We encourage the participation of young investigators and students, who will have an amazing opportunity to present their data and to interact with our senior researchers. In this respect, the members of “SBTx Jovem” (Young investigator’s Committee) are preparing activities to allow for thorough interaction for all young participants.

In the Congress’ web site you can find all the important information, including the deadlines for registration, abstract submission information and also information about the staying at the Hotel Fonte Colina Verde. The hotel manager has been preparing special offers to favor the stay of all the participants together in this hotel.

We hope to see you in our Congress in São Pedro!

Yara Cury
Congress Chair
President SBTx
