ICADTS sponsors two sessions at International Association of Legal Medicine


ICADTS has organized two sessions at the 2016 Symposium of the International Academy of Legal Medicine (IALM) to occur June 21-24, 2016.  The goal of the overall symposium is to discuss the present and future evolution of bio-medicolegal sciences in the post-genomic framework of Personalized Medicine, in terms of symposium themes: innovation, unitariness and evidence.


The ICADTS sessions are scheduled to occur on Wednesday, June 22. One session will cover a variety of topics related to medicinal drugs and driving.  The second session brings together scientists from around Europe, including several Eastern European countries, to discuss recent research.  In all, 12 different countries will be represented in the sessions.


We also plan a meeting for all ICADTS members and for anyone interested in becoming involved with ICADTS on Thursday, June 23.  This promises to be a stimulating program that appeals to a wide range of interests.  For more information on the Symposium, go to For more information on the ICADTS sessions and meetings, email Kathryn Stewart at
