The Society of Toxicology, a professional and scholarly organization of scientists who practice toxicology in the United States and abroad, is committed to creating a safer and healthier world by advancing the science of toxicology. The society promotes the acquisition and utilization of knowledge in toxicology, aids in the protection of public health, and facilitates disciplines.
To that end, the society is accepting applications for the Syngenta Fellowship Award in Health Applications of New Technologies.
The annual award, presented to either a third year (or later) graduate student or a postdoctoral trainee, is designed to support mode-of-action research aimed at characterizing dose-dependent effects of xenobiotics on mammalian systems in such a way that the causal sequence of key events underlying toxicity is elucidated. The work should permit a quantitative basis for extrapolation of the results from animal bioassays or animal models (in silico, in vitro) to humans at relevant human doses.
The award consists of a plaque, $15,000 in fellowship funds, and travel support to the SOT annual meeting to accept the award and for travel to a Syngenta facility to present the results. This is a one year, non-renewable award.
To be eligible, applicants must be third year (or later) graduate student or postdoctoral trainee employed by an academic institution, federal/national laboratory, or research institute. In addition, the applicant must be member of the society, or have membership pending by the application deadline of October 8, 2017.
