The United Kingdom Mutagenicity Society (UKEMS) as the UK branch of the European Environmental Mutagen Society (EEMS), exists to serve those scientists working in the UK in the area of DNA damage and mutations caused by environmental agents (i.e. chemicals and radiation). It encompasses academic research into the mechanisms and consequences of mutagenesis, and applications of this knowledge to the testing of novel pharmaceutical, industrial and agricultural chemicals for genotoxic effects.

Each year at the UKEMS annual meeting, the IGG host a session dedicated to genotoxicity topics relevant for an industrial audience. These sessions include both invited speakers and selected abstracts submitted to the conference.
