We are beginning the third decade of the 21st Century, and science and the field of neurotoxicology have changed rapidly in the first two decades of this century, and will continue to do so. Now is the time to look forward and examine the challenges the field of neurotoxicology is currently facing and describe the work that is needed to address these challenges over the next decade. This Topic will solicit brief, forward looking opinion papers for leaders in various areas of neurotoxicology that will describe the state of the science in that part of the field and outline major accomplishments that need to take place in the next decade to move the field forward. Authors will be asked to identify the greatest challenges in the sub-discipline, and how to address those challenges. Among other questions that could be addressed are “What research questions are the most pressing or could be the most fruitful to explore”. Potential topics include: In vitro screening, behavior and neurodevelopment, regulatory neurotoxicology, human models and 3 dimensional tissues, alternative species and environmental epidemiology. However, papers in other topics related to neurotoxicology would be considered. The “forward-looking” nature of these articles by more seasoned investigators, almost all of whom will be retired from the field by 2030, will provide direction and guidance to mid-career and new researchers in the field.


Keywords: Developmental neurotoxicology, epidemiology, regulatory neurotoxicology, neurodegeneration, human models
