Upcoming MATT Meeting

The Midwestern Association for Toxicology and Therapeutic Drug Monitoring (MATT) is a regional toxicology group comprised of forensic, clinical and industrial toxicologists. Areas of interest range from OWI to pain management to latest drug testing methodologies to veterinary toxicology. We do our best to keep the meeting costs down and to encourage young scientists to become involved. In addition, young scientists can apply for the Sunshine-Wong travel award in order to be able to attend. Attached please find a Call for Abstracts for the annual meeting in April, 2016, in St. Louis, MO. More information and the Sunshine-Wong application can be found at the website,

Forensic Science Education through RTI

The Center for Forensic Sciences at RTI International supports the National Institute of Justice, the Office of Victims of Crime and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration in developing and delivering online education for forensic scientists and managers.

Although frequently unable to attend regional or national meetings, practicing forensic professionals must stay current with best practices in their fields. RTI's online courses give forensic professionals access to a wide variety of subject matters with impressive depth and applicability. Each instruction module contains approximately one hour of instructional content and is delivered on-line to facilitate course attendance and completion. The rich content courses are delivered in a live setting, in addition to on-demand, self-paced instruction. Upon completion, attendees receive a certificate of completion. Where appropriate, RTI's courses are accredited.
