The objectives of the Genetic Toxicology section are:

• Informing the members about genetic toxicology research in a broad sense, especially regarding news and relevant research developments.
• promoting contacts between researchers in the area of genetic toxicology.

At least one time per year the section holds a scientific conference with varying themes. During these meetings a topic of genetic toxicology from different sides is illuminated. The aim is to target a balance between the contributions from the various institutions where genetic toxicologists are active (university, government, industry, research institutions). In addition, small informal workshops will be organized annually to discuss practical example problems (suggestions can be sent to the board).

In addition, the section maintains contact with other (foreign) scientific associations in the field of genetic toxicology and related fields. The annual scientific sessions will also be organized regularly in cooperation with the other associations.
