About this Research Topic
Frontiers has organized a series of Research Topics to highlight the latest advancements in research across the specialty of Veterinary Pharmacology and Toxicology, with articles from the members of our accomplished Editorial Boards. This editorial initiative of particular relevance, led by Dr. Arturo Anadón, Specialty Chief Editor of the Veterinary Pharmacology and Toxicology section, is focused on new insights, novel developments, new tools for researchers, current challenges, latest discoveries, recent advances, and future perspectives in the area of Veterinary Pharmacology and Toxicology.
Pharmacology and toxicology are translational sciences. Pharmacology translates fundamental insights into drug action and fate into clinical therapy. Toxicology translates science, transferring knowledge from fundamental science into practical applications to safeguard animal health, human health, and the environment. Nowadays, veterinary pharmacology and toxicology should be regarded as disciplines contributing to the paradigm “One Health,” reducing risk at the animal–human–ecosystems interface.
The Research Topic solicits brief, forward-looking contributions from the editorial board members that describe the state of the art, outlining recent developments and major accomplishments that have been achieved and that need to occur to move the field forward. Authors are encouraged to identify the greatest challenges in the two disciplines, and how to address those challenges.
The goal of this special edition Research Topic is to shed light on the progress made in the past decade in the Veterinary Pharmacology and Toxicology disciplines, and on its future challenges to provide a thorough overview of the field. This article collection will inspire, inform and provide direction and guidance to researchers in the domain.
Keywords: Veterinary Pharmacology and Toxicology
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
