The association was set up in 2009 in response to the need for integration of professionals working in all areas for toxicology, environmental health and occupational health in Portugal. To strengthen this integration, AP Tox encourages partnerships with other professional organizations.
Members are from industry, academia, consultants, and regulatory authorities. Membership is open to any individual with a genuine interest in toxicology, environmental health and occupational health. AT Tox aims to keep its members well informed. It regularly organizes scientific meetings on specific topics of interest to its members.
To encourage members interested in particular fields of toxicology, a number of speciality sections have been established. These allow individuals to exchange scientific views and provide a platform for integration across professions. Sections often organize specialized workshops, training, and projects. Currently, AP Tox has the following specialty sections:
· Regulatory toxicology & risk assessment
· Genetic toxicology & biomarkers
· Environmental toxicology & alternative testing
AP Tox is a member of the following organizations/networks: IUTOX (International Union of Toxicology), EUROTOX (Federation of European Toxicologists & European Societies of Toxicology), EEMS (European Environmental Mutagen Society), & WHO Chemical Risk Assessment Network.
Membership is open to all individuals with a genuine interest in toxicology. Individual membership fees are 25€/year (15€/year for students). For membership applications, please contact the AP Tox secretary (aptox @ sapo.pt).
