Increase Scientific Impact

Lead Author

Deborah O'Keefe


Society of Toxicology (SOT) is a broad-based, multidisciplinary organization, whose members share the common goal of "creating a safer and healthier world by advancing the science of toxicology." Over the years, the SOT has instituted a number of activities to facilitate advancements in the field of toxicology. However, many additional opportunities exist to increase the visibility of scientific advances made by toxicologists, and to communicate these advances in a way that emphasizes their potential to improve human and public health. Similarly, numerous avenues exist to promote scientific progress within the discipline, with the potential to enhance the impact of Toxicology as a seminal science for human, animal and environmental health.

Key Objectives

  • Foster integration of sub-disciplines that support the evolution of toxicology. SOT will effectively recruit the diversity of science necessary to support and realize the full impact of Toxicology on health.
  • Increase the impact of toxicology on human health and disease prevention. SOT will take a leadership role in stimulating and fostering research and training as well as broadening appreciation of the role that Toxicology plays in predicting and mitigating toxicity and the prevention of disease.
  • Increase awareness and recognition for scientific achievements within toxicology. SOT will highlight significant scientific achievements of its members and broaden awareness of these accomplishments.

Become Global Forum for Novel Discoveries and Approaches Related to Toxicology

Committee: Global Task Force

  • Session on global advances at SOT Annual Meeting.
  • CCT (e.g., Contemporary Concepts in Toxicology) Meetings held in global locations.
  • Sponsor joint sessions with non-US scientific organizations.

Strengthen Partnerships with other Scientific and Health-Based Organizations

Committee: Global Task Force

  • Outreach to other societies to work on topics of mutual interest.
  • Develop partnerships to set global toxicology agenda.


GTF is seeking assistance or volunteers to work on many areas.
