Expert Opinion on Drug Metabolism and Toxicology – Innovations in predictive toxicology

About the special issue

Animal-free toxicology methods have become a more compelling choice for chemical safety and risk assessment as researchers, pharmaceutical companies and regulatory policies are shifting away from the use of animals. Consequently, science-based alternative approaches to predicting toxicity in humans – such as in vitro systems, in silico methods, stem cells, and a range of combinatory approaches involving omics and modelling/simulation – is a vibrant and burgeoning field.

Our Editor-in-Chief, Luis G Valerio Jr, PhD, ATS an internationally recognized toxicologist in safety/risk assessment and alternative methods in toxicology is working closely with Expert Opinion on Drug Metabolism and Toxicology to shine a spotlight on these ‘Innovations in predictive toxicology’

In this special focus issue, we will highlight what key innovations are being made into predicting toxicity to understand human adverse effects of substances, and the current applications that are utilizing these techniques. In addition to this, we will also explore what fundamental hurdles must be overcome to advance their use as decision-support for clinical studies and what future prospects may be on the horizon. We welcome proposals for review articles, original research, interviews, perspectives and short editorials that highlight innovations in predictive toxicology.

If you are interested in contributing, or would like to learn more, then please reach out to the Commissioning Editor, Amelia Dennis, who will be happy to assist.
