SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS
ASCEPT members have many diverse interests and so have formed Special Interest Groups to acknowledge these strengths, to enhance the cohesion of the Society and to promote and advance the study and application of pharmacology and toxicology in its broadest context.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land where we work and live. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. We celebrate the stories, culture, and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders of all communities who also work and live on this land.
