Every year, the Postdoctoral Assembly (PDA) not only proudly acknowledges the contributions of our postdoctoral scholars to the science of toxicology, but also recognizes the outstanding toxicological research published by SOT Postdoctoral members through the Best Postdoctoral Publication Award.

The PDA is pleased to announce the availability of the 2022 Best Postdoctoral Publication Award, recognizing outstanding postdoctoral researchers who have recently published papers in the field of toxicology as a result of the work conducted during their postdoctoral research experience. Three awards will be presented at the PDA Luncheon during the 2022 SOT Annual Meeting in San Diego, California. Awardees receive $250 and a plaque recognizing their achievements.

The PDA Board, in collaboration with subject matter experts in the appropriate fields, reviews all applications. The review process follows the National Institutes of Health conflict-of-interest, confidentiality, and nondisclosure policies.

Information about the award and a listing of previous recipients can be found on the “Best Postdoctoral Publication Awards” web page.

Please submit your application by email to SOT Headquarters before 11:59 pm (ET) on October 1, 2021.
