Scandinavian Society for Cell Toxicology

The scandinavian society for cell toxicology (ssct) was founded in 1983. ssct is a scientific discussion forum for cell toxicologists primarily, but not exclusively, active in northern Europe. The main aim is to create an innovative research network by arranging an In Vitro Toxicology Workshop each year in a Nordic country (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, or Sweden) to present research, exchange ideas and to facilitate research collaboration. Proceedings of these meetings have been published in ATLA 1985-2007 and from 2008 in Toxicology In Vitro. The ssct Workshop is an excellent forum for young researchers to be introduced to the scientific community of more experienced and distinguished cell toxicologists .ssct hands out the Björn Ekwall Memorial Award every year to scientists who significantly have contributed to the field of cell toxicology. ssct is an affiliated society to the European Society for Toxicology In Vitro. ssct members can become members of ESTIV to a reduced fee. Since the start of ssct, annual workshops on in vitro toxicology have been held in the autumn each year, and they are now held every second year. They have been organised by a member of ssct on a volunteer basis and the place for the meetings have rotated betweeen the Nordic countries or been arranged as merged meetings together with other European organisations with similar interests. The duration of the meetings has generally been three to four days and the numbers of participants have been between 50 and 100. The scientific presentations have usually been a few invited speakers, among them the Björn Ekwall Memorial Lecture, and several 15 minutes platform presentations. Typical sessions of the meetings are Mechanisms and biotransformation, In vitro toxicity testing and Validation of in vitro methods. The proceedings from the meetings have been published in ATLA (Alternatives to Laboratory Animals, published by FRAME, Nottingham, UK ) from the start until 2007 and from the Salzau meeting in 2007 in Toxicology In Vitro (Elsevier). The proceedings from the meeting 2013 in Charlottenlund will be published in Basic & Clinical Pharmacology & Toxicology.
