13–14 November 2017 Toxicology Meeting 2017
Meetings International proudly announces the Global Experts Meeting on Toxicology Conference scheduled during November 13-14, 2017 at Singapore, with a theme of “Communing Toxicology Investigations for Human Health".
Toxicology meeting 2017 will impact an attractive moment to meet people in the research field and therefore it takes a delight in opening a gate to meet the ability in the field, young researchers and potential speakers.
The global Toxicology testing market is expected to USD 27.36 Billion by 2021 from USD 14.15 Billion in 2016, at a CAGR of 14.1% between 2016 and 2021. Toxicity testing of new compounds is essential in drug development, as identifying the potential toxicity at an early stage in drug discovery can save both time and developmental costs, and also reduce the likelihood of late-stage failure. Market is valued at USD 12.54 Billion in 2016. This market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.7% during the forecast period to reach USD 21.87 Billion by 2021.
Meetings International provides a Global Platform for Toxicology Professionals, Biotech, Medical and Healthcare Professionals to Exchange Ideas, Knowledge and Networking at its 100+ International Conferences.

22–25 March 2018 The 12th World Congress on Controversies in Neurology (CONy 2018)
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We are proud to announce that the 12th World Congress on Controversies in Neurology (CONy) will take place in Warsaw, Poland on March 22-25, 2018.
In recent years the field of neurology has witnessed enormous growth in clinical and basic data. Conferences are more informative but there is often only limited time for thorough discussions. Consequently a gap appears between the expansion of knowledge and its dissemination and use. CONy provides a platform for international experts to discuss and compare experiences.
The core of the CONy Congress are the debates which enable participants to discuss unresolved issues with leading world experts. The Congress aims at providing the most recent data armoring the clinician with reliable, up-to-date scientific information, helping in everyday patient care.
We cordially invite you to join us in the beautiful city of Warsaw!
