FOUNDING PARTNERS

Institute of Neurotoxicology and Neurological Disorders



The Institute of Neurotoxicology and Neurological Disorders (INND) is a Seattle-based non-profit 501(c)3 organization, which has focused for the past 10 years on research and education about chemicals and toxic agents. Of particular interest to INND is how to use existing scientific information to help the public and policy makers make well-informed decisions.

The organization seeks new and innovative communication mechanisms to distribute information about chemicals including their health effects, their impacts on the environment, and proper use. By facilitating the dissemination of toxicology and chemical information to the public, INND strives to educate and empower citizens to make choices that create healthy, sustainable communities and environments.


International Union of Toxicology



IUTOX is the voice of toxicology on the global stage; the organization which seeks to increase the knowledge base of toxicological issues facing humankind and to extend this knowledge to developing societies and nations. Founded in 1980, IUTOX now has 53 affiliated societies representing all six continents and over 20,000 toxicologists from industry, academia and government as members; offering a diverse and challenging perspective on every issue and development relating to the profession.

The leadership of IUTOX is held by the Executive Committee (EC), which changes every three years and is elected by the member-society-appointed delegates. The EC reviews and redefines the IUTOX mission to develop and establish objectives and tasks to ensure that IUTOX continues to be the voice for toxicology internationally.


National Library of Medicine



The National Library of Medicine (NLM), the world's largest biomedical library, located in Bethesda, Maryland, is a part of the National Institutes of Health, US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and played a pivotal and early role in the creation of publicly available online information systems. Its Toxicology and Environmental Health Information Program (TEHIP) serves as a global focal point for free Web-based toxicology information. Among its products are TOXNET®, a collection of toxicology and environmental health databases, including the Hazardous Substances Data Bank (HSDB) and TOXLINE, an extensive bibliographic data, as well as other files in areas such as risk assessment, occupational safety and health, carcinogenesis, and genetic toxicology. The World Library of Toxicology was originally developed by TEHIP at NLM, where a pilot version was maintained prior to its transfer to INND/Toxipedia.


Toxipedia



Toxipedia is a free scientific information repository and resource center. The site educates the public about health concerns and increase connectivity in the toxicological community. Toxipedia hosts over a thousand pages on environmental and public health topics with contributions from medical and dental professionals, toxicologists, risk assessment experts, students, and laypeople. Thanks to our Confluence Content Management System, users can easily add and edit pages and seamlessly connect with one another. Toxipedia is not merely a toxicological encyclopedia; it is becoming an interactive tool to bring current and future scientists together with the public to foster a healthier world.
