The In Vitro Toxicology Society (IVTS) has changed and become the United Kingdom Animal Alternative Technologies (UKAAT) society.

Over the last few years, the need for an In Vitro Toxicology forum and regular congress as provided by the IVTS has been gradually eroded away due to the larger mainstream societies (such as BTS and SOT) promoting more and more in vitro technologies on their annual programs.

The IVTS committee reviewed the landscape and determined that a HUB was needed where information relevant to the many and varied technologies now being used in the field of animal alternatives was required.

UKAAT was formed (

Visit the new site and register with us as we form and build a new community for sharing knowledge, experience, information and resources as well as training, videos, etc on a platform where that information can either be open to the public or be located in a member’s area thus providing a secure location for non-publicly available resources.

On behalf of the committee, thank you and let’s make UKAAT the hub that brings all our scientific interests together
