Welcome from the Chairs


Dear participants of the 21st World Congress of the International Society on Toxinology,


On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to once again greet you heartily here in beautiful Abu Dhabi and invite you to attend the 21st World Congress of the International Society on Toxinology (IST) that will be held in Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers, United Arab Emirates, from October 16 to 21, 2022. It is the first time that IST World Congress will be held in the Middle East region.


We are glad that our efforts in preparing for the Conference brought results and you were kind enough to accept our invitation and come to beautiful Abu Dhabi. We are committed to holding this conference as a ‘virtual/in-person' hybrid event.


The 21st IST World Congress will encompass a broad range of themes, including animal venoms, bacterial toxins, fungal toxins, plant toxins, synthesized toxins, toxin discovery & structure identification, toxin pharmacology, clinical toxinology, etc.


Building on the successes of the past meetings, which demonstrated commitment to a diverse and inclusive program, showcasing senior and emerging researchers from across the globe, we endeavor to maintain this scientific excellence and originality and offer the toxinology community another exciting scientific agenda in 2022.


We are looking forward to an excellent meeting with great scientists from different countries around the world and sharing new and exciting results in toxinology.


I will see you soon in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates!


Yours sincerely,


Tarek M. Abd El-Aziz
