Dear Friends and Colleagues,


The Covid-19 pandemic has separated people from meeting each other in person for almost three years. We hope every one of you stay safe and healthy. With the waning of the pandemic, we sincerely wish the normal life will be resumed soon.


The Toxicology Society of Taiwan (TSTA) is honored, jointly with the Asian Society of Toxicology (ASIATOX), to organize the 10th International Congress of Asian Society of Toxicology (ASIATOX-X) from July 17-20, 2023, in Taipei, Taiwan. The congress theme is “Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs in Toxicology”. On behalf of the ASIATOX and the TSTA, we warmly welcome you to attend the ASIATOX-X.


The ASIATOX was founded in 1994 and the first ASIATOX Congress was held in 1997 in Yokohama, Japan. Since then, nine Congresses have already been hosted in turn by the member societies of ASIATOX. In ASIATOX-VIII (2018, Thailand), the Council of ASIATOX has passed a resolution to change the interval time of organizing the International Congress of ASIATOX from every three years to two years. We will bring the ASIATOX family together again two years after the successful 2021 ASIATOX-IX held in Hangzhou, China. We believe that the 2023 ASIATOX-X in Taipei will provide an excellent platform to promote the prosperity and development of toxicological science & technology in Asia and foster scientific cooperation in Asia, the Pacific region, and the world.


Taipei is Taiwan's largest city as well as its economic, political, and cultural center. It is a modern cosmopolitan metropolis with a lively and diversified face, filled with exuberance. Though a heavily populated city, Taipei is easily accessible because of its convenient transportation systems. Suburban areas are incredibly green. In fact, no matter where you are in Taiwan, between the busy cities there is always a lush tropical forest nearby. You may enjoy a bird's-eye view of the capital from Taipei 101, Taiwan's tallest building, visit National Palace Museum to appreciate historical objects, or take a walk on old streets in Jiufen, Tamsui, Yingge, and Sanxia to immerse in old-time charm. Taipei invites you into a world of fascinating contrasts - a mix of the modern and traditional, with a generous dash of energy and friendly smiles to make this one of your most memorable trips in Asia.


The cultural kaleidoscope of Taiwan's main city pulses wherever you go. Incense-veiled temples dating back to dynastic times blend seamlessly with a neon street life of a decidedly more modern era. Taipei has dozens of world-class restaurants where gourmets can sample the best regional Chinese cuisine; and for the gourmand, there are plenty of night markets serving up scrumptious evening snacks in an environment of chaotic excitement and fun. In addition, the blue sky and oceans, as well as soft gold sand beaches, plus all kinds of fun water facilities, await visitors to enjoy.


The academic activities of ASIATOX-X Congress will cover the latest research progress, frontier theory and technology, and future scientific development prospective in various aspects of toxicology, as well as the practical application of toxicological knowledge and technology in the fields of environmental and ecological safety, and human health. The Congress will offer once again a great atmosphere for discussion, scientific exchange, and sharing ideas to ensure further progress. We hope that you all enjoy the beautiful conference venue and take the opportunity to meet your old friends, interact with your colleagues, young scientists and students.


We wish to share with you an innovative and fruitful toxicology Congress in Taipei.
