Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the International Neurotoxin Association (INA) and its Conference Organizing Committee, I am pleased to announce that the next international conference―TOXINS 2021: Basic Science and Clinical Aspects of Botulinum and Other Neurotoxins—will be held 13-16 January 2021, in Gothenberg, Sweden.

The fourth international conference, TOXINS 2019, generated much excitement among the 1,409 participants representing clinicians and scientists from 58 countries.

The proceedings of TOXINS 2017 are available in a special June 2018 issue of Toxicon, and abstracts from TOXINS 2019 are published in a supplement issue of the journal Toxicon, Volume 156S1, Supplement, Pages S1-S120 (December 2018).

The TOXINS 2021 scientific program will feature morning plenary session presentations on the latest developments in the basic science and clinical applications of neurotoxins, as well as afternoon basic science and clinical parallel tracks, practical clinical workshops―including case-based sessions with injection demonstrations on live patients―and poster sessions. The program–presented by the world’s experts in their respective fields – will be of interest to basic scientists and clinicians in the fields of neurology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, dermatology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, urology, gastroenterology, and pain management.

I look forward to sharing more details of the conference with you in the near future, and hope you will join us in Gothenburg for TOXINS 2021.
