Are you a graduate student with a passion for toxicology, eager to showcase your research on a prestigious platform? The SOT Graduate Student Travel Support award program is designed to assist graduate students pursuing a PhD in toxicology by providing financial support to attend the annual SOT Annual Meeting and ToxExpo. The SOT meeting is a hub for innovation, knowledge exchange, and networking, making it an invaluable experience for toxicologists at any level.
