Venoms & Toxins 2023
Only a few places for in-person attendance remaining!
We warmly invite you to attend our 2023 international toxinology conference “Venoms and Toxins 2023” which will be held on 22nd -24th August 2023 at St Edmund Hall (Queen’s Lane, Oxford, UK) as a ‘virtual/in-person’ hybrid event. Building on the successes of our past meetings, which demonstrated our commitment to a diverse and inclusive programme, our 2023 conference will maintain this scientific excellence and originality, offering the toxinology community another exciting scientific agenda.

Conference summary: The conference agenda will include most aspects of toxinology research. Our key priority scientific areas for this meeting include:
- New techniques for analysing venoms and antidotes (venomics, antivenomics)
- Clinical toxinology: novel treatments for victims of envenoming (small molecular weight venom enzyme inhibitors and novel antivenom designs)
- Biological interface: evolution of venoms; new venomous taxa; habits of venomous animals that bring them into contact with humans; conservation of toxifauna and toxiflora
- Snake venom/antivenom
pharmacokinetics and dynamics and their applicability to snakebite diagnostics
- Neuropharmacology and neurophysiology
- Plant toxins
- Bacterial toxins
Get involved in shaping the conference agenda: We wish to invite the whole toxinology community to play an active role in designing the scientific programme of this meeting, whether you are planning to attend or not. We welcome proposals for:
>keynote and other speakers
>an emerging toxinologist award
We particularly encourage young researchers, including final-year doctoral students and early-/mid-career postdoctoral researchers/junior group leaders to play an active role in putting together regional (e.g., African, Asian, South American) and international ECR symposia on topics of their interest in the field of toxinology, and to submit their proposals to benefit from this valuable opportunity. Furthermore, we welcome proposals for focused/themed toxinology and educational symposia as main part of the conference agenda. The proponents would be expected to organise funding/sponsorship for their proposed symposia.
