About IN2TOX – IN VITRO AND IN SILICO TOXICOLOGY SPECIALTY SECTION

The first In2Tox meeting establishing the speciality section was held Monday, September 9, 2019 during the 2019 EUROTOX Helsinki congress. The objectives of In2TOX SS are:

  • To serve as a focal point for interaction of members of EUROTOX interested in the field of in vitro and in silico toxicology.
  • 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.
  • 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.
