…about ITCASS
The goal of the ITCASS is to serve as a focal point for members of
EUROTOX interested in immunotoxicology, chemical allergy and
food allergy through educational activities that emphasize
fundamental development and application in immunotoxicology,
chemical allergy and food allergy, planning and execution of
scientific programs, and in particular, workshops and symposia
held during the EUROTOX annual congress. In addition, the
section seeks to promote immunotoxicology as a discipline by:
1) increasing our understanding of the impact of xenobiotics
on the immune system
2) increasing our understanding of the mechanisms of
immunomodulation, and
3) encouraging the development of new methods and
techniques to improve risk assessment.
ITCASS Officers include the President, the Secretary, and two
Councilors. The term of each Officer is three years. All Officers
are chosen among ITCASS members and are elected by ITCASS
members by mail voting.
