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

SFT network meetings (preliminary dates):

  • Monday February 8th at 11.30-12.30
  • Monday April 12th at 11.30-12.30
  • Monday June 21st at 11.30-12.30


SFT continues with digital meetings for professional networking during the spring 2021!

Our aim is to create an opportunity for toxicologists to meet and share their experiences in a professional meeting.

The meetings will be held as lunch meetings via the digital platform Zoom. We hope that the chosen time will make it possible for many of our members to participate!

In each meeting, we will meet four toxicologists, two who are eastblished and two early-career toxicologist, who introduce themselves and tell about their work and career choices. All STF members are welcome to attend as an audience and there will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end.

Since we arrange this type of network meetings for the first time, we kindly ask you to register your interest in advance via this link.

Everyone who has registered an interest will receive information about the upcoming meetings via e-mail.

If you have registered an interest in actively participating in a professional meeting, you will be especially contacted by us who organize the meetings.

We will conduct the professional meetings in English or Swedish depending on the participant's preferences. In case the presentations are held in Swedish, you can always ask questions in English!
