AltTox Management Team Welcomes New Members

AltTox is pleased to welcome Rodger Curren of the American Society for Computational and Cellular Toxicology (ASCCT) and Kate Willett of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) to the AltTox Management Team. They join the current members George Daston of Procter & Gamble and Martin Stephens of the Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing. AltTox was founded by Procter & Gamble and the Humane Society of the United States in 2007 as a communication and informational hub on non-animal methods of toxicity testing.

Members of the toxicology community know Rodger Curren primarily from his role as President of the Institute for In Vitro Sciences (IIVS), which advances in vitro testing through contract testing, training workshops, involvement in test development and validation, and other means. He has broadened his advocacy of in vitro methods through his leadership of the ASCCT, a professional society centered on non-animal approaches to toxicity assessment. Rodger is also a member of the AltTox Editorial Board.

Kate Willett is Director, Regulatory Toxicology, Risk Assessment and Alternatives for the HSUS. A geneticist by training, Kate has authored a number of scientific publications, and has been a tireless advocate for animal testing alternatives in the United States and internationally.

The Management Team is part of the broader AltTox group, which includes Editorial Board members (Joss Bessems, Ed Carney, Sandra Coecke, Emanuela Corsini, William Dressler, Ian Kimber, Hajime Kojima, Albert Li, William Mundy, Horst Spielmann, and Grace Tier, as well as Curren, Daston, Stephens, and Willett), our Contributing Editor, Sherry Ward, and Webmaster, Loree Talley.
