VIPER Institute Sunset Symposium

The VIPER Institute was originally established within the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tucson in 2007, as an Arizona Board of Regents Center of Excellence. Beginning in 2018, it was housed in the University of Arizona’s BIO5 Institute. With affiliated scientists and clinicians around the world, VIPER members studied the effects of venom – from spiders, snakes and scorpions – on people and on animals. For more information, visit:

Research into the toxinology of snake, spider and scorpion venom was a focus of the VIPER Institute over many years, and this event will bring together the innovators and scientists responsible for the discovery and development of some of the most important treatments for envenomation in the Americas. The themes to be featured during the main symposium will include translational toxinology, antivenom development and One Health toxinology.  

This event will be held on Thursday, April 13 from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. in the Health Sciences Innovation Building Forum with break-out sessions following.
