The Applied Genetic Toxicology SIG is looking to gather people form a wide variety of backgrounds including pharmaceutics, consumer products, chemical products, food sciences and environmental researchers to discuss emerging science and regulatory issues that are highly relevant to applied genetic toxicology. We aim to provide a forum where members from industry, regulatory agencies and academia can meet to discuss common issues. SIG members and leadership will drive the annual agenda, focusing on key topics and issues that genetic toxicologists are currently facing. Partnering with other SIGs such as the Risk Assessment SIG we plan to help support EMGS strategic planning. We aim to accomplish our goals through a morning breakfast meeting and sponsorship of workshops at the annual meeting, along with periodic communications through the year to members.
