GETA was formed in 1979 to promote the acquisition of knowledge, to encourage research, and facilitate communication related to environmental and genetic toxicology among interested persons in the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California. Any person working, studying, teaching or otherwise demonstrating an interest in disciplines related to environmental and genetic toxicology is eligible for membership. To encourage wide participation, annual dues and meeting fees are minimal. Members come from many different organizations within the regulatory, academic, and private industry communities.
GETA sponsors up to 3 scientific meetings per year, generally consisting of presentations by invited speakers or GETA members on a wide-range of topics of interest to our membership.
GETA also sponsors travel awards for students to national meetings.
Who can join? GETA membership is open to any person working, studying, teaching, or just interested in environmental and genetic toxicology, toxicology, risk assessment, biotechnology, and other related scientific areas.
