September 2010 SASBCP Meeting

On behalf of the society, I’m pleased to announce that TOXSA, in conjunction with the South African Society for Basic and Clinical Pharmacology (SASBCP), hosted the South African Congress for Pharmacology & Toxicology 2010 in Cape Town, South Africa. The theme of the congress was Minimising risk - Optimising efficacy: Pharmacology and Toxicology in the next decade. Some of the toxicological issues that were covered included oxidative stress, mycotoxins and nanotoxicology. International speakers that attended the congress included: Hartmut Derendorf from the University of Florida, Willi Weber from Germany, Tomas Salmonsson from the MPA and CHMP, Margaret Briehl from the University of Arizona and Atholl Johnston from the University of London, all of whom are recognised experts at the forefront of their respective research areas. The congress was a great success in terms of providing exposure to research that’s occurring both nationally and internationally and was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended.

On the last day of the congress, TOXSA held its AGM, which covered topics concerning previous congresses, such as the 7CTDC (2009) and SACPT 2010, the society’s executive committee and a few undertakings that the society currently occupies itself with. Concerning the TOXSA executive committee, it was announced at the AGM that Sibele Hietkamp resigned as Treasurer of the society, which prompted a restructuring of the executive committee: Prof Mary Gulumian and Prof Vanessa Steenkamp remains as president and vice-president respectively. Melissa Vetten was elected as treasurer and Japie van Tonder as the secretary of the society. Wilna Jansen van Rijsen and Tracy Snyman remain as members of the committee, while Robyn van Zyl, Cherylynn Wium and Werner Cordier joined the committee as new members.
