Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I am very pleased to invite you on behalf of the Croatian Society of Toxicology to the 6th Croatian Congress of Toxicology with international participation that will be held October 4-7, 2020 in Rabac, a beautiful small city in Istria.

The Croatian Society of Toxicology is a very active scientific organization that strives to educate toxicologists in our country. Our Congress in Rabac is focused precisely on this task, as, among other events, we have organized the Continuous Educational Course “Old methods, new perspective: new regulation and approach to toxicity testing of food chemicals” under the auspices and with the financial support of EUROTOX. The authors of the best five young scientists’ abstracts will be awarded with  Congress Award for Young Scientists’ fellowships to participate at the Congress. According to our experience, the short presentations of young scientists are usually very exciting parts of the Congress.

Our Scientific Committee invited eminent scientists to participate as invited lecturers at our Congress. I am always delighted by the enthusiasm of the Organizing Committee which plans every detail of the Congress in advance and the result has always been a joyful, smooth, and relaxed event.

Abstracts of all invited lectures, oral presentations, presentations of the winners of Congress Award for Your Scientists and posters will be printed in the Abstract Book as a Supplement of the scientific journal Archives of Industrial Hygiene and Toxicology, the official journal of the Croatian Society of Toxicology.

The final management committee and conference of the hCOMET COST Action will also take place in Rabac, Croatia in October 2-3 2020, just before the 6th Croatian Congress of Toxicology. I invite you to participate at the hCOMET COST Action conference and take the opportunity to learn about the latest achievements in Comet assay and meet eminent scientists from all over Europe.

On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing Committees, I wish to invite you to participate at the 6th Croatian Congress of Toxicology with international participation and enjoy the latest scientific discoveries at our wonderful Rabac.


President of the Congress
