The goal of the Immunotoxicology and chemical allergy speciality section (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 programmes, and in particular, workshops and symposia held during the EUROTOX annual congress.

In addition, the section seeks to promote immunotoxicology as a discipline by increasing our understanding of the impact of xenobiotics on the immune system, increasing our undestanding of the mechanisms of immunomodulation, encourage the development of new methods and techniques to improve risk assessment.

The annual face to face meeting takes place during the annual EUROTOX congress. Please join us!
