Midsouth Chapter of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry
The Mid-South Chapter of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) is an independent, nonprofit professional society that provides a forum for discussion of pertinent issues, technology and trends in environmental toxicology and chemistry among professional peers in the area. Mid-South SETAC benefits from a relatively balanced member base in academia, government, and industry that is reflected in the participation, interaction, and differing perspectives of members during Mid-South SETAC activities.
Society of Toxicology
The Society of Toxicology is a professional and scholarly organization of scientists from academic institutions, government, and industry representing the great variety of scientists who practice toxicology in the U.S. and abroad. The Society promotes the acquisition and utilization of knowledge in toxicology, aids in the protection of public health, and facilitates disciplines. The Society has a strong commitment to education in toxicology and to the recruitment of students and new members into the profession.
Society for Neuroscience
The Society for Neuroscience is the world's largest organization of scientists and physicians dedicated to understanding the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system.
Neuroscientists investigate the molecular and cellular levels of the nervous system; the systems within the brain, such as vision and hearing; and behavior produced by the brain. This research provides the basis for understanding the medical fields concerned with treating nervous system disorders. These medical specialties include neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry and ophthalmology.
International Society for the Study of Xenobiotics
The goals of the Society are to facilitate and encourage the assemblage, acquaintanceship and the association of scientists engaged in research in Xenobiotic metabolism and in other related disciplines; to disseminate, discuss and publish results of research and related matters of interest in metabolism; to promote public awareness of chemical metabolism and its social and environmental implications; and to promote education and training in the field.
American Society of Limnology and Oceanography
ASLO fosters a diverse, international scientific community that creates, integrates and communicates knowledge across the full spectrum of aquatic sciences, advances public awareness and education about aquatic resources and research, and promotes scientific stewardship of aquatic resources for the public interest. Its products and activities are directed toward these ends.
Ecological Society of America
The Ecological Society of America (ESA) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization of scientists founded in 1915 to:
* promote ecological science by improving communication among ecologists;
* raise the public's level of awareness of the importance of ecological science;
* increase the resources available for the conduct of ecological science; and
* ensure the appropriate use of ecological science in environmental decision making by enhancing communication between the ecological community and policy-makers.
ESA publishes a suite of publications, from peer-reviewed journals to newsletters, fact sheets and teaching resources.
