February 2018 ToxSci Online: Editorial on Designing Safer Products




The current issue of Toxicological Sciences (February 2018, Vol. 161, Issue 2) includes a special section on the interface of green chemistry and toxicology and an Editorial by Nicholas Anastas and ToxSci Editor-in-Chief Gary W. Miller on A Farewell to Harm: The Audacity to Design Safer Products. As Dr. Miller notes in From the Editor's Desk, 

"...Green chemists need input from toxicologists as they design, synthesize, and develop new chemicals and products. Although most toxicologists spend their time evaluating toxicity, we need more of them preventing toxicity at the earliest stage. I encourage you to look inside ToxSci for the most influential research in the field of toxicology, including interactions with the field of green chemistry."

Moreover, in this issue there are four Editor's Highlights prepared by ToxSci Associate Editors on Ethylene Glycol Teratogenicity, Jodi A. Flaws; Identifying Drug Idiosyncrasies, Hartmut Jaeschke; Refined Modeling for MeHg Elimination, Gunnar Johanson; and Reproductive Toxicity of Nanoflowers, Saber M. Hussein.  

The mission of ToxSci, the official journal of the Society of Toxicology, is to publish the most influential research in the field of toxicology.
