Strategic Plan

(2015–2018 Strategic Plan Under Review)

Looking to the future, the Society of Toxicology (SOT) Council has developed a new strategic plan that focuses on meeting the challenge of keeping toxicology in the forefront of scientific advancements that benefit public and environmental health. The real value of this process comes from the Membership providing input on the draft 2015–2018 Strategic Plan.

(2012–2015 Strategic Plan Approved January 2012)

After a year review process, in January 2012 the Society of Toxicology has articulated the following strategic direction for the next four years.
