cyouuThe NVT is one of the largest toxicological associations in Europe. It is an open society: everyone working in a field related to toxicology, or follows a study which prepares for a role in the field of toxicology, can become a member. The association members have very different backgrounds, such as biology, biochemistry, agronomy, chemistry, (veterinary) medicine, biomedical sciences, pharmacy or environmental science.


In addition to general membership, every NVT member can also register as a member of one or more sections or working groups of the association. One section focuses on a distinct subfield of toxicology, while the focus area of a working group is important for various disciplines within toxicology. The NVT currently has the sections Occupational Toxicology, Pharmaceutical Toxicology, Genetic Toxicology, Environmental Toxicology, Risk Assessment and Toxicological Pathology. In addition, there are committees that focus on organizational fields.
