ISSX advances research and education on the interplay
of living systems with medicines and chemicals for the benefit of society worldwide.

ISSX has an international base of members from more than 45 countries. Members are comprised fairly evenly between academic and industry groups and consist primarily of research scientists and future scientists in toxicology, pharmacology, molecular biology, and other disciplines related to the study of xenobiotics.

As the foremost organization representing the interests of researchers and educators in the field of xenobiotics, the Society is engaged in multiple activities to support, promote, and advance the profession on a global scale. 


Any professional who is involved in research, teaching and/or public service and whose activities are related to the study of xenobiotics is eligible for membership provided that he/she supports the goals and objectives of the Society as set forth in the Constitution and By-Laws. Annual membership dues will be determined by the Council of the Society and must be paid on a continuing basis unless the member submits a written resignation. 

ISSX recognizes the considerable benefit that scientists from disadvantaged nations can gain from our Society. Please click here to see if you are able to renew your ISSX membership at a discounted member rate.
