Welcome to SFT – a society for all that have an interest in toxicology!


SFT was established in 1969 and represents a society for all that are interested in toxicology as well as students and those working within the field of toxicology.


Toxicology is a multidisciplinary field which explores unintentional/adverse effects on living organisms caused by for example chemicals, nanomaterials and radiation. Toxicology includes both effects on human (human toxicology) and environmental health (ecotoxicology). The society has a need for essential toxicological knowledge within many different areas such as fundamental research, the development and testing of new chemicals and pharmaceuticals, as well as risk communication and risk/safety assessments.


Our purpose is to spread toxicological knowledge and information and to serve as a platform for networking between our members. Therefore, SFT arranges several seminars per year. One of these seminars is in connection with our annual meeting.

We are thriled and thankfull to Lars Wiklund for writing the history of SFT between the years 1995-2021. You can read the full version by following this  link
