The mission of the New Technologies Special Interest Group is to provide a forum for discussion on existing and emerging technologies that relate to current topics in the field of mutagenesis, genetic toxicology, molecular epidemiology and toxicology. Relevant activities of this SIG may include, but are not limited to, organizing and/or sponsoring symposia, roundtable discussions, workshops; Inviting speakers to introduce new technologies, and discuss their strengths and limitations. In addition, this SIG will provide a platform for academia, industry and government agencies for discussion and guidance in incorporating new technologies into the risk assessment and safety evaluation process. Topics chosen for the proposed activities of the SIG will focus on those areas of new emerging science and technology that are deemed most likely to be of broad enough interest so as to be relevant to existing Society members while, by virtue of novel content, attracting new members; in this way, expanding the scope of the Society.
