With the mission to educate, lead, and serve professionals in toxicology and related disciplines by promoting the exchange of information and perspectives on applied toxicology and safety assessment, the American College of Toxicologists provides numerous opportunities for members and nonmembers to participate in continuing professional education.
The Annual Meeting offers participants the opportunity to learn and/or expand their knowledge on the application of toxicology in safety assessment and regulatory settings through attendance and active participation in continuing education courses and symposia on contemporary issues. The Annual Meeting also allows scientists, especially from drug development and regulatory sectors, to engage in open exchanges regarding areas of mutual scientific interest, including best practices, and to interact on a professional basis in a collegial setting.
The ACT Exhibition offers attendees the opportunity to meet with their industry partners in an intimate setting, and all under one roof. ACT attendees maximize this opportunity and are very engaged with exhibitors.
The American College of Toxicology is a professional organization of about 1000 toxicologists who work in industry, pharmaceutical and biotech companies, government regulatory agencies, or as consultants. ACT provides a forum for collegial exchange of information. ACT holds their Annual Meeting every November. Other educational opportunities include courses and webinars held throughout the year and around the globe. The latest scientific information of interest is published in the ACT journal, the International Journal of Toxicology.
