ACT Signature Webinar Series: Talking Tox When Others Don’t “Speak the Language”
Hosted by the American College of Toxicology in collaboration with the ACT Early Career Professional Subcommittee

With support from: The British Toxicology Society and the Society of Toxicologic Pathology

Carla Marashio, BA, Deciphera Pharmaceuticals
Amy Kim, MSPH, PhD, DABT, Seagen, Inc.

Have you ever been the only toxicologist in the room or felt like all eyes were on you as the subject matter expert? Cross-functional collaboration is an important part of any successful program, and involves working closely with key stakeholders, from chemists to clinicians, who may be less familiar with the conduct and outcomes of nonclinical toxicology studies. Effectively communicating toxicology findings, study design, and program needs to non-toxicologists can help improve the cross-functional capabilities of your team. So how can toxicologists best explain goals, share interpretations, and discuss toxicologically relevant data with colleagues who don’t “speak the language?” In this ACT webinar, we will discuss challenges, strategies, and practical considerations for successful communication in toxicology, as well as case studies from the unique perspectives of toxicologists. We are excited to hear from both Carla Marashio from Deciphera Pharmaceuticals, who will discuss high level strategies to demonstrate how data finding influences communication decisions, and Amy Kim from Seagen Inc., who will provide specific case studies on how to present technical data with a clear and simple message. This integration of speaker point of views will be deeply informative and will help improve scientific communication and support across disciplines.

Please join us to learn about what strategies can be used to effectively communicate and promote cross-functional collaboration across an array of diverse sectors in toxicology. Stay tuned for a Q&A session at the end of the webinar.
