The Environmental Mutagen Society of India (EMSI) was founded in 1975, primarily to promote and encourage research, and disseminate information in broader areas of environmental mutagenesis, as relevant to human health and environmental safety. The Society is an affiliate of the International Association of Environmental Mutagen Society (IAEMS) and Asian Environmental Mutagen Society (AEMS). Understanding the mechanisms of mutagenesis and evaluating risk of genotoxic agents for producing diseases especially cancer, are the primary objectives of the society. EMSI organizes an Annual Conference to keep the members abreast with the latest developments in biomedical sciences, particularly genetic toxicology. The Conference targets a wide audience of scientists in diverse interdisciplinary domains of biology, chemistry, pharmacy, medicine and those engaged in public health. It provides an apt platform for encouraging collaborative research and training at national and international levels.
