About ISSX - International Society for the Study of Xenobiotics
The International Society for the Study of Xenobiotics (ISSX) was founded to advance research and education on the interplay of living systems with medicines and chemicals for the benefit of society worldwide.
We are an international base of 1,100 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 DMPK (Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics) and other related areas of research, ISSX is engaged in multiple activities to support, promote, and advance the science worldwide.
ISSX Mission & Goals:
The International Society for the Study of Xenobiotics (ISSX) is the premier scientific organization for researchers interested in the metabolism and disposition of xenobiotics. ISSX was formed in 1981 when a small group of scientists, brought together during the 1970's under the aegis of the Gordon Research Conferences on Drug Metabolism, created an international society to promote the interaction of scientists dedicated to the study of xenobiotics in living systems.
ISSX is one of the largest scientific societies dedicated to investigating the metabolism and disposition of chemicals in biological systems. The Society’s activities are relevant to all aspects of drug development and toxicology worldwide. The strength of the organization is its international nature as well as the breadth of the membership’s interests.
The term Xenobiotic comes from the Greek for xeno (foreign) and biotics (of or pertaining to life). Xenobiotics are compounds that are foreign to an organism or are not part of its normal nutrition. Examples of Xenobiotics are compounds that include drugs, food additives, and environmental pollutants. These agents are normally eliminated from the body after metabolism to compounds that are excreted through the bile, kidney, lung, or dermus. Enzymes that metabolize Xenobiotics are very important for the pharmaceutical industry as they are responsible for the breakdown of drugs. Likewise, Xenobiotic transporters also affect the duration that drugs are present in the body.
ISSX Mission & Goals:
ISSX advances research and education on the interplay of living systems with medicines and chemicals for the benefit of society worldwide.
Objectives of the Society
Foster and encourage inter-disciplinary, innovative science relating to the disposition, metabolism and biological effects of drugs and other xenobiotics
Facilitate the association of scientists from all geographic regions in this field and related disciplines
Disseminate and discuss the results of research and related matters of interest
Promote education and training in this field

What Does ISSX Do?
As the foremost organization representing the interests of researchers and educators in DMPK and other related areas of research, ISSX is engaged in multiple activities to support, promote, and advance the science worldwide. ISSX:
Hosts the International Meeting, one of the world’s largest gatherings of researchers in xenobiotics, offering innovative short courses, symposia, lectures and other events.
Hosts regional meetings and workshops in Asia-Pacific, Europe, and North America on a regular basis.
Awards recognition of excellence in scientific and service achievements through the international Distinguished Scientific Achievement and Distinguished Service Awards, and the regional Scientific and New Investigator Awards.
Offers opportunities for professional exposure through solicitation and publication of abstracts and poster presentations.
Why Exhibit with ISSX?
