The Society of Toxicology consists of members from more than 60 countries and is dedicated to enhancing the impact and relevance of toxicology around the globe. SOT members from around the world are involved as leaders and participate in all activities of the Society. Because of the importance of supporting the discipline of toxicology everywhere, SOT has special programs for toxicologists in developing countries identified by SOT.

SOT has funds available to support collaborations between the Society, SOT Component Groups, SOT Committees, and other toxicology organizations.Read more
SOT provides funding to support meetings by other toxicology organizations or in developing regions on topics related to toxicology and public health.Read more
To encourage the exchange of information and expertise across the world, the Society has established several programs that are designed to bring toxicologists from diverse backgrounds together.
GSSEP provides funding support for a senior-level scientist from a developing country to visit a senior-level scientist with an established toxicology program to gain insight into toxicology research programs. The host senior scientist returns the visit to offer further advice and guidance to the developing toxicology program.Read more
This program sends toxicologists to institutions in developing nations to conduct campus visits and increase the awareness of educational and career opportunities in toxicology. The format of the visit (formal presentation, informal discussion, or a combination) is at the discretion of the campus host and the visitors.Read more
These awards sponsor fellowships, administered by IUTOX, that assist senior scientists from countries where toxicology is underrepresented with funds to travel to and attend the SOT Annual Meeting and ToxExpo.Read more
SOT offers discounted membership dues for scientists from eligible developing countries. These discounted memberships also include membership in one SOT Special Interest Group and one SOT Specialty Section.
