A list of organizations related to toxicology with particular attention to event dedicated to alternative methods to animal testing
In vitro and in silico toxicology specialty section (EuroTox). The objectives of In2TOX SS are: 1) To serve as a focal point for interaction of members of EUROTOX interested in the field of in vitro and in silico toxicology. 2) To propose scientific programs, such as workshops and symposia, to be held at EUROTOX annual congresses, and to promote educational activities that emphasize developments in fundamental and applied in vitro and in silico toxicology. 3) To relate those developments to the activities of EUROTOX in order to stimulate growth in the science of in vitro methods, in silico modelling and new approach methodologies in general.
The Animal-Free Safety Assessment (AFSA) Collaboration brings together corporate and non-profit leaders who share the goal of accelerating a modern, species-relevant approach to safety assessment globally to better protect people and our planet, and hasten the replacement of animal testing.
Johns Hopkins University Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing. We believe the best science is humane science. Our programs seek to provide a better, safer, more humane future for people and animals.
SOT Computational Toxicology Specialty Section. Mission: 1) To serve as the focal point for interaction of members of the Society of Toxicology interested in computational toxicology; 2) To enhance the understanding and acceptance of computational toxicology within the Society of Toxicology and in the public domain; 3) To foster the evolution of scientifically relevant approaches to and interpretation of toxicological aspects that are unique to computational toxicology; 4) To develop, propose, and conduct a variety of cutting-edge programs and educational activities that emphasize the latest developments and issues in computational toxicology; 4) To act as a resource to the Society in the area of computational toxicology
The European partnership for alternative approaches to animal testing (EPAA) is a unique voluntary collaboration between the European Commission, European trade associations, and companies from 8 industry sectors. The partners are pooling knowledge and resources to accelerate the development, validation and acceptance of alternative approaches to animal testing. The overall aim is the replacement, reduction and refinement (3Rs) of animal use in regulatory testing.
The PETA International Science Consortium Ltd. The PETA International Science Consortium Ltd. promotes robust non-animal testing methods that protect human health and the environment. The Science Consortium coordinates the scientific and regulatory expertise of its members to advance the development, use, and global regulatory acceptance of the best in silico and in vitro testing approaches.
Animal Testing and Alternatives. Championing Methods To Replace Animal Testing. The Physicians Committee works with government and industry to replace the use of animal tests with modern methods to test the safety of cosmetics, chemicals, pesticides, drugs, and other products.
