SETAC North America is a Geographic Unit (GU) of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC), established to promote and undertake activities of SETAC in the United States, Canada and Mexico, and to support other GUs in Asia/Pacific, Europe and Latin America. SETAC North America is dedicated to the use of multidisciplinary approaches to examine the impacts of stressors, chemicals and technology on the environment. The Society also provides an open forum for scientists and institutions engaged in the study of environmental problems, management and regulation of natural resources, education, research and development, and manufacturing.
Each year SETAC North America organizes an annual meeting, generally attended by more than 2,300 scientists. The awards program of SETAC North America is designed to encourage and recognize major achievements in environmental toxicology and chemistry.
