The Society of Toxicology (SOT) congratulates our new members and those members who have upgraded their membership this year through May 2017!
In the first half of the year, 189 members have upgraded their SOT membership, and 369 new members, including 124 Full members, 62 Associate members, 43 Postdoctoral members, and 140 Graduate Student members, have joined the Society. New members become part of the worldwide SOT network of more than 8,200 members from 69 different countries. Members from academic institutions, industry, government, and other scientific organizations are committed to SOT's vision of "creating a safer and healthier world by advancing the science and increasing the impact of toxicology."

A special thank you to all the Full members who sponsored new Full and Associate members, as well as to the research advisors and mentors who have sponsored new Graduate Student and Postdoctoral members to date this year. Your support of these new members continues to build and sustain a strong and vibrant society. Thank you also to the SOT Membership Committee for your diligent review of membership applications.
New members through May 2017 reflect those who were approved for membership as a result of applications completed and submitted by January 1 and May of 1 this year.
Is it time to upgrade your membership? Let your membership level reflect your professional experience in the field of toxicology, and take advantage of additional member benefits. Do you know someone who is due for an upgrade? Encourage them to submit their application by September 1 to be included in the next review cycle. Membership upgrade requests may be made via the online application.
