On July 1, the Society of Toxicology (SOT) joined the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), bringing the number of Federation members to 31.
“We are very proud to have the Society of Toxicology join the Federation. With its large, diverse membership in academic, government, and industrial settings, the society will strengthen our advocacy and broaden the perspectives of our policy deliberations,” said Thomas O. Baldwin, PhD, FASEB President. “This is a great opportunity and we look forward to developing the partnership.”
Founded in 1961, SOT represents the wide variety of practicing toxicologists in the U.S. and abroad. SOT promotes the acquisition and utilization of knowledge in toxicology, aids in the protection of public health, and has a strong commitment to toxicology education.
“SOT and its members welcome the opportunity to collaborate with the other FASEB members,” said John B. Morris, PhD, SOT President 2016-2017. “The concerns of toxicologists are frequently shared by biologists, biomedical researchers, and other related scientists, and we look forward to working alongside them on issues of importance to our scientific communities.”
