SOT Undergraduate Research Awards Showcase Toxicology Talent

The Faculty United for Toxicology Undergraduate Recruitment and Education (FUTURE) Committee, which is mostly composed of undergraduate faculty, was concerned when they approached the review of the SOT Undergraduate Research Award (SURA) applications toward the end of 2020. They knew the challenges students were facing with virtual coursework and wondered how research for an SOT abstract had been accomplished. They were so pleased to find, however, that students were still able to conduct research, including several whose work had been done virtually, and that there was a robust pool of impressive students who had abstracts accepted for the SOT Annual Meeting.

Eleven students were selected for this award and will be honored as part of the awards presentation that will be available during the Virtual SOT Annual Meeting. We encourage you to seek out their abstracts and chat with them during the poster presentations (dates and times for each researcher are listed in this blog). FUTURE also is organizing special activities for the SURA students, and they will participate in events that are organized for all undergraduate registrants by FUTURE and the Committee on Diversity Initiatives. These activities include analysis of a toxicological case study and sessions on graduate school and career paths in toxicology. We look forward to future contributions from these scientists!
