Specialty Sections

The Society of Toxicology has established 29 Specialty Sections that may propose sessions for the Annual Meeting, exchange information via newsletters, present awards, and participate in other scientific activities. You must be an SOT Member to join a Specialty Section.

Specialty Section Collaboration and Communication Group

The Specialty Section Collaboration and Communication Group (SS-CCG) is comprised of 10 Presidents or Past Presidents representing the 29 SOT Specialty Sections. Each year five incoming Specialty Section Presidents, or a proxy, are elected/appointed to this group by the outgoing 29 Specialty Section Presidents. Each elected member serves for a term of two years. The SS-CCG meets by teleconference once a month to discuss items related to the SS-CCG Mission:

Mission Statement:

  1. To collaborate and communicate issues, concerns, and opportunities of the Specialty Sections to and from SOT Council.
  2. To support the collective voice from all Specialty Sections while recognizing their diversity in interest, size, and dynamics.
  3. To facilitate the exchange of ideas and issues across Specialty Sections.
