Vision

The International Union of Toxicology (IUTOX) achieves its vision by fostering international scientific cooperation for the global acquisition and utilization of knowledge in toxicology for the improvement of human health.

IUTOX is the voice of toxicology on the global stage; the organization seeks to increase the knowledge base of toxicological issues facing humankind and to extend this knowledge to developing societies and nations. Founded in 1980, IUTOX now has 62 affiliated societies representing six continents and over 25,000 toxicologists from industry, academia, and government as members, offering a diverse and challenging perspective on every issue and development relating to the profession.

The leadership of IUTOX is held by the Executive Committee (EC), which changes every three years and is elected by the member-society-appointed delegates. The EC reviews and redefines the IUTOX mission to develop and establish objectives and tasks that will ensure that IUTOX continues to be the voice for toxicology internationally.

Mission

To improve human health through the science and practice of toxicology worldwide.

The Society of Toxicologic Pathology

Society of Toxicologic Pathology

AIM Partner since 2002

Vision

The vision of the Society of Toxicologic Pathology (STP) is to be an international leader for improvement of human, animal, and environmental health using an interdisciplinary scientific approach based in pathology and toxicology. This vision will be accomplished through four primary goals: recruitment, advocacy, globalization, and education.

Mission

STP was founded in 1971 as a nonprofit association of pathologists and other scientists whose principal aim is the advancement of pathology as it pertains to changes elicited by pharmacological, chemical, or environmental agents and factors that modify these responses. The Society’s 1,250 members in over 20 countries are scientists and professionals who work in academic institutions, government, the pharmaceutical and chemical industry, or contract research organizations or as consultants. They are dedicated to integrating toxicologic pathology into hazard identification, risk assessment, and risk communication regarding human and animal exposure to potentially toxic substances. STP provides expert guidance to legislative and regulatory decision-makers regarding toxicologic pathology data and human or animal health.

AIM Partner since 2014

The Toxicology Forum

Vision

The vision of the Toxicology Forum is to be recognized as the leading international toxicology organization that promotes and encourages open dialogue among government agencies, industry, academia, policymakers, and public interest groups concerned with public health issues; such interactions will facilitate sound policy decisions that protect and promote public health.

Mission

The mission of the Toxicology Forum is to encourage open dialogue on human health and environmental issues that drive public concerns, academic involvement, industry action, and regulatory decision-making. This is accomplished through organizing and conducting meetings among government granting and regulatory agencies, the scientific community (academia, government, and industry), and public interest groups. The dialogue at these meetings facilitates the resolution of conflicts, identifies research gaps, drives research agendas, and promotes sound regulatory and policy decision-making. The proceedings from meetings of the Toxicology Forum are made publicly available. The Toxicology Forum always strives to provide balanced programs, does not advocate for any particular scientific or policy position discussed during their meetings, and does not attempt to reach consensus from the discussions and presentations. The Toxicology Forum encourages participation in their forums from scientific and policy experts in government, industry, academia, and consumer interest groups, and they provide the necessary infrastructure support to accomplish this mission.
