On behalf of the International Neurotoxin Association (INA) and its Conference Organizing Committee, I have to inform you that due to the current global COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, TOXINS 2021: Basic Science and Clinical Aspects of Botulinum and Other Neurotoxins, which was scheduled for 13-16 January 2021, in Gothenburg, Sweden at the Swedish Exhibition and Congress Centre, has been postponed. The conference will now be held 12-15 January 2022, in the same location.
This decision reflects our overriding concern for the health, safety, and well-being of our staff, members, meeting attendees, and faculty.
The abstracts from TOXINS 2019 are published in a supplement issue of the journal Toxicon, volume 156S1, pages S1-S120 (December 2018).
The proceedings from TOXINS 2019 have been published and can be accessed here:
The biennial TOXINS conferences are the premiere venue for consideration of the latest developments in the basic science and clinical applications of neurotoxins. The scientific 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.
You are advised to check the INA website periodically for updates on registration, abstract submission, venue & housing, and other conference details. Please know we will reach out to you with any updated information.
There will be a virtual TOXINS program in 2021 January. We will let you know about these exciting developments once the program is set.
I look forward to your joining us in an outstanding TOXINS conference in January 2022.
