The overall objective of this lecture will be to present an overview of the evolution of the science of immunotoxicology by highlighting a few key milestones, namely a solid mechanistic foundation and recent applications in a regulatory context. Neither time nor space will allow a discussion of the full extent of the evolution of immunotoxicology from a historical perspective.
