Society of Toxicology (SOT)
SOT the parent organization of the Food Safety Specialty Section, was founded in 1961 as a professional scientific society. The Society is an organization of scientists from academic institutions, government, and industry representing the great variety of scientists who practice toxicology. The Society’s diverse activities promote the acquisition and utilization of knowledge in toxicology, aid in the protection of public health, and facilitate the exchange of information.
Liaisons with Related Societies
We have a desire to foster collaborative relationships with other societies with similar interests. This could include co-organizing symposia, programs, and other avenues of addressing current food safety issues. In the past we have collaborated with the International Life Sciences Institute in a joint workshop. Currently we have members serving as liaisons to the American Institute of Nutrition, and the Institute of Food Technologists.
