The American Society for Cellular and Computational Toxicology (ASCCT) is a scientific society dedicated to the promotion of toxicology testing and research that reduces and replaces the use of animals.
Toxicology testing is currently undergoing a paradigm shift from a primarily observational, whole animal-based science to a predictive, mode of action-focused discipline.
The Society aims to provide an organized forum for discussion of cellular (in vitro) and computational toxicology approaches especially as replacements for animal-based toxicology methods. Through its meetings and activities, the Society will facilitate the development, acceptance, and routine use of cellular and computational methods through open dialog between industry, academic, advocacy, and regulatory scientists. The Society strives to include the participation of young scientists to promote their contributions to the field.
