Recently published collection “Advances in Experimental and Regulatory Toxicology”

We are very pleased to announce the publication of a themed collection titled Advances in Experimental and Regulatory Toxicology.

This is a collection of papers consisting of invited contributions to honour the contributions made to toxicology by Professor Iain Purchase and Dr Cliff Elcombe. The British Toxicology Society (BTS) readily agreed with the guest editorial team that it would be appropriate to publish a special collection in their journal as a mark of respect and appreciation of the contribution of Iain Purchase and Cliff Elcombe made to the science of toxicology, primarily but not exclusively through their involvement with the Central Toxicology Laboratory (CTL).

The contributors represent a range of scientific excellence, some having worked at CTL or had collaborated with scientists in CTL. Others are scientists whose success in solving toxicological problems represent the ambitions of Iain Purchase and Cliff Elcombe in their approach to addressing toxicological problems. Guest Edited by Brian Lake, Lewis Smith and Sam Cohen.

You can see the entire collection here.
