1) Promote the diverse application
of in vivo animal models in toxicologic research; comparative and clinical
environmental toxicology and to explore effects of animal disease, nutrition,
and other physiological confounding factors that affect toxic endpoints;
2) Serve as the focal point for interaction of members of the Society of Toxicology
who are interested in veterinary toxicology and in the use of in vivo animal
models in toxicology; 3) Conduct cutting edge programs and educational activities
which emphasize current developments and issues of interest to CVSS members.
Relate those developments to the activities of the Society of Toxicology,
stimulate interest and growth in use of in vivo models and veterinary toxicology
in relation to the general science of toxicology; and 4) Act as a resource
to the Society in the area of veterinary toxicology and in vivo animal models.
