Welcome to the webpage of the Environmental and Toxicologic Pathology Scientific Interest Group (SIG) of the American Society of Investigative Pathology. This SIG is cosponsored by the Society for Toxicologic Pathology.
We are a group of enthusiastic researchers with the mission of advancing our understanding of the molecular and cellular pathogenesis of environment-associated diseases. We also maintain the vital aim of fostering investigations into early diagnosis and protection of world-wide populations from detrimental environmental hazards.
We live in complex environments surrounded by mostly hidden chemical, biological and physical hazards. Our central mission is to develop a community of multidisciplinary researchers interested in the mechanisms of environmentally-induced diseases, in solving the problems facing our vulnerable populations, and in implementing an integrative approach to human environmental disease.
The Environmental and Toxicologic Pathology SIG provides a forum for interaction with both experts and trainees in the field as well as researchers from other fields that are interested in the environment's impact upon our health. The interaction across fields allows members to initiate discussions, foster collaborations, and network. We hope to promote cutting-edge environmental research that encompasses basic mechanistic, experimental, and clinical/translational investigations using state of-the-art approaches, technologies, and model systems.
Please consider joining this important SIG. You will not only strengthen your role in our Society but can also help your students and trainees to share protocols and methods, and meet researchers interested in new collaborations, including international ones. We are committed to share our passion for discussing timely topics, highlight advances, debate controversies, and address our needs and our mission.
The objectives of the ASIP Environmental and Toxicologic Pathology Scientific Interest Group are:
