The STP-I was established in 2004 as a nonprofit association of pathologists and other scientists whose principal aim is the advancement of pathology as it pertains to changes elicited by pharmacological, chemical, or environmental agents, and factors that modify these responses. The Society’s 250 members in over the various countries are scientists and professionals who work in academic institutions, government, the pharmaceutical and chemical industry, contract research organizations, or as consultants. They are dedicated to the integration of toxicologic pathology into hazard identification, risk assessment, and risk communication regarding human and  animal exposure to potentially toxic substances. The STP-I provides expert guidance regarding toxicologic pathology data and human or animal health.

What is Toxicologic Pathology?

Toxicologic pathology is a medical discipline that applies the professional practice of pathology—the study of diseases—to toxicology—the study of the effects of chemicals and other agents on humans, animals, and the environment. Toxicologic pathology professionals work in academic institutions, government, the pharmaceutical and chemical industry, contract research organizations or as consultants, and utilize traditional clinical or anatomic pathology endpoints, as well as contemporary advances in molecular and cellular biology. They are dedicated to the integration of toxicologic pathology into hazard identification, risk assessment, and risk communication regarding human, animal, and environmental exposure to potentiallytoxic substances.
