ETOX Gathering at SOT in Salt Lake City

The annual Society of Toxicology meeting was held in Salt Lake City this year. There were a good number of former ETOX students, faculty and one current student attending. On Monday March 8, a group of us got together for dinner at Himalayan restaurant serving Nepalese and Indian food. Below is a photo from the dinner as well as a couple of others that I took. In addition to those listed below, Drew Olaharski, James Keenan, Chris Frantz, and Bob Krieger also attended the meeting.
