MISSION STATEMENT

The Society aims to provide an organized forum for discussion of cellular (in vitro) and computational toxicology approaches especially as replacements for animal-based toxicology methods. Through its meetings and activities, the Society will facilitate the development, acceptance, and routine use of cellular and computational methods through open dialog between industry, academic, advocacy, and regulatory scientists. The Society strives to include the participation of young scientists to promote their contributions to the field.

GOALS

  • Facilitate the development, acceptance, and routine use of cellular and computational methods.
  • Increase the routine application and use of computational and in vitro methods for prioritization, classification, and risk assessment purpose
  • Foster open dialog between industry, academic, advocacy, and regulatory scientists throughout North America.
  • Include the participation of young scientists to promote their contributions to the field.
  • Strengthen cooperation between cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and chemical industry scientists and professionals.
