XEMET 2010 has been realized successfully in October 2010 in Thessaloniki, Greece. XEMET 2010 has covered a broad area of Xenobiotic Metabolism and Toxicity. A special emphasis has been placed on transporters, especially hepatic transporters, on metabolizing enzymes, on new technology for studying xenobiotic metabolism and toxicity, and on Food and Environmental Influence on Reproduction. Two workshops on PCR techniques have taken place during the Congress. XEMET 2010 was supported by IUPHAR-DMS. 15 scholarships of 500 Euro donated by EUROTOX have been granted to 15 European investigators.

Thessaloniki, the venue of the meeting, is the second largest city of Greece. Named after the sister of Alexander the Great, Thessaloniki is the capital of Macedonia and has a history longer than 2300 years old. It is a beautiful city in front of Thermaikos Gulf and it is considered as the most friendly and lively city of Greece. During the Congress, sightseening tours to nearby historical places have taken place, like the city tour, and the visit to Dion, Vergina and the marvelous Museum surrounding the tomb of  King Philip (the father of Alexander the Great), who was the first Greek King who united the ancient Greek cities.
