The history of bilateral meetings of Czech and Slovak toxicologists began 20 years ago. Despite the split of the former Czechoslovak Federation into two independent states in 1993, scientific as well as friendly bonds between Slovak and Czech researches have never been interrupted. Moreover, mutual cooperation of both countries continues on a higher level within bilateral scientific projects, by organising conferences and exchange study stays, now in the frame of the common European Union. In order to carry on the long tradition of interdisciplinary toxicological conferences regularly held in the Medical House in Prague, since 1996 these meetings were held in various Slovak and Czech locations organised by turns in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Over the last years there has been a growing interest in attending toxicological conferences. Scientist not only from toxicology quarters but also from other related disciplines, such as pharmacology, physiology, endocrinology, oncology or biotechnology take part in.
