EUROTOX is pleased to announce that it has joined the Scientific Liaison Coalition (SLC). The mission of SLC is to improve the ability of societies to partner with other domestic and international organisations with the goal of advancing science to improve human and environmental health. Benefits of membership include participation in identifying and fostering awareness of cutting-edge interdisciplinary scientific advances, networking opportunities across diverse scientific societies, and enhanced volunteer opportunities
"Over the last two years, EUROTOX has worked to fine tune its mission to "foster the science and education of toxicology, and influence regulatory and policy frameworks to promote the safety of humans, animals and the environment, and protect global health. We believe that joining the Scientific Liaison Coalition (SLC) is an excellent way to continue to strengthen our long term strategic vision to continue to increase the awareness of toxicology and the importance role it plays in ensuring the well being of human and animal welfare", said Prof. Heather Wallace, EUROTOX President.

Adverse Outcome Pathways – have your say and shape the future of Chemical Risk Assessment


The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) has launched an online survey to gather views on non-animal mechanistic approaches, the AOP framework, and the AOP Knowledgebase. 

The results of the survey will provide valuable input to a number of activities being pursued at the JRC including a comprehensive study of stakeholder views and needs concerning the AOP Framework and how it should evolve to serve regulatory priorities now and in the future. 

Click the link to complete the survey.  It only takes about 10 minutes of your time! The closing date before the end of September.
