Who We Are
Its primary purpose is to promote the development of the science of genetic toxicology and to foster the exchange and dissemination of information concerning the field.
The GTA thus provides a unique and important opportunity for scientists from different types of organizations to routinely and openly exchange knowledge, ideas, views and insights.
