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.

Call for papers: Systems Toxicology

You are invited to contribute to the upcoming Toxicology Research themed issue on Systems Toxicology.

Guest Edited by Professor Ian Wilson (Imperial College London, UK) this upcoming themed issue will cover a wide span of topics, from mathematical in silico models, more descriptive “omics”-based approaches (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabonomics, etc.), to developing a systems view of toxicity.

Systems toxicology, which forms a subdivision of systems biology and was pioneered by Leroy Hood, has many definitions, but as a framework for hypothesis generation and testing may represent an important new way of explaining, modelling and predicting the consequences of the exposure of organisms to toxins. It is clear from even a cursory examination of the literature that systems toxicology has now reached a sufficient state of maturity that a themed issue dedicated to this field is overdue.

For your article to be considered for this themed issue we must receive your manuscript by 3 February 2017.

Communications, Full Papers and Review articles are welcomed. If you are interested in submitting please contact us to let us know.
