Understanding the evolution of the field of Toxicology

June 1, 2016

How do we know that the science generated in the laboratory is being used for regulatory purposes? In collaboration with UCLA’s Sustainable Technology and Policy Program (STPP), we are examining the evolution of the field of Toxicology since the call in 2007 by major governmental agencies to include novel assays and technologies in chemical safety assessment (Toxicity Testing in the 21st Century). We developed a survey tool and asked more than 1,000 toxicologists in 195 countries about their perception of the use, barriers and drivers of alternative testing methods. This work allows us to capture the different currents of thought and the dynamics being a field in evolution.
