Dear colleagues and delegates,

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to Istanbul for the 4th Regional International Association of Forensic Toxicologists (TIAFT) Meeting in Turkey between 2021 on behalf of the Turkish Society of Forensic and Clinical Toxicology and TIAFT. 

After Izmir, Antalya and Cappadocia, this year’s venue is legendary Istanbul. Istanbul is not only Turkey's the most developed and largest city but also is full of ancient heritage and contemporary developments with the endless variety that fascinates the visitors, along with excellent transport links.

This meeting, with an innovative and forward-looking scientific agenda, will create opportunities for the forensic scientists, criminal specialists, police, lawyers, pharmacologists and toxicologists to share the latest research findings and to collaborate in view of recent advancements on the forensic toxicology.  Participants will be able to present their experiences, explore new directions and debate topics in forensic toxicology and related forensic science.

The meeting will be complemented by an exciting social program to experience the history, culture and hospitality of our host venue. Istanbul has a mild lovely Mediterranean climate at this period-beginning of the September, so this will be an opportunity to see colleagues and make new friends where Europe and Asia meet. Hope to welcome you with enjoyable and amazing two-continent views.

We cordially invite all of you to make the meeting an event to remember together in Istanbul.

With Warmest Regards,

Serap Annette AKGÜR
