As Dr. Burns Naas begins her tenure as SOT President, she outlines some of the SOT Council objectives for the coming year, including continuing to make enhancements to the Annual Meeting and ToxExpo, developing an updated strategic plan, and finding the next Toxicological Sciences Editor-in-Chief.
Since 2012, the Global Senior Scholar Exchange Program (GSSEP) has fostered collaborations between dozens of top scientists, helping advance toxicology in developing nations. As one Scholar shares, “It stimulates toxicologists to believe in their potential and work to achieve a bigger target.”
From updating the content and website of Toxicological Sciences to developing partnerships for the sharing and storage of data, Gary W. Miller has been an exemplary leader of SOT’s official journal, and the Board of Publications is looking for a worthy successor.
On March 27, I had the opportunity to participate in the Biology research seminar at Westminster College, in Westminster, PA. This is my second visit to Westminster, but this time I had the opportunity to present about opportunities in toxicology and my collaborative research with undergraduates.
I am very thankful and honored to be chosen to receive the Diversity Initiatives Career Development Award through which I attended the Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) 2017 conference in Salt Lake City, Utah.
