About SOT Special Interest Groups

SOT Special Interest Groups bring together scientists who share a common interest in issues germane to specific communities.

SOT Special Interest Group membership is open to all SOT members in good standing as well as non-SOT members. To join a Special Interest Group or renew your membership, pay your dues through the SOT Online Payment System.

Special Interest Group Collaboration Group

The Special Interest Group Collaboration Group (SIG-CG) is a governance group comprised of 16 members representing the eight SOT Special Interest Groups. Each Special Interest Group selects two representatives and determines their duration of time to be served. At least one of the two representatives must be on the board of their Special Interest Group. The Collaboration Group Co-Chairs are from different Special Interest Groups and serve a two-year term.

The mission of the SIG-CG is to:

  1. Support the collective voice of all Special Interest Groups—while recognizing their diversity in interests, size, and dynamic—in order to facilitate exchange among the individual groups;
  2. Emphasize global outreach efforts, including connections with members outside the US;
  3. Enhance and formalize a communication strategy between Council and the Special Interest Groups; and
  4. Address emerging global issues in toxicology.
