Joel Cohen, Sc.D., DABT has been appointed to the Secretary position for Society of Toxicology’s Computational Toxicology Specialty Section.
Computational toxicology is a field of science that uses in silico (computer-based) methodologies to predict potential adverse toxicological features and properties of chemicals.
Computational toxicology is an emerging field that is gaining increasing scientific and regulatory acceptance. Computational toxicology provides methods and models for use in all disciplines of toxicology, including regulatory, academic, clinical, and industrial, and will play an increasingly important role in safety evaluation and risk assessment.
