Calling All Experts: Register Now for "Chat with an Expert" in San Diego!

The Graduate Student Leadership Committee (GSLC) is extending an invitation to participate in this year’s “Chat with an Expert (CWAE)” program. This program provides the opportunity for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to meet with expert toxicologists at the 2015 Annual Meeting in San Diego, March 22–26, 2015.

Feedback from participants is very positive every year, and we encourage your participation as an expert to lead a meeting with graduate students and/or postdocs.

Experts will choose a date, time, and location for the meeting during the registration process that is convenient for their schedule. Graduate students and postdocs will then be able to select experts based on research, professional interests, and time availability. Each expert will be assigned no more than 3 students, and will receive brief backgrounds on the assigned students before the meeting.

The meeting can include a meal (breakfast, lunch, or dinner), be a chat over coffee or snack, or simply an informal meeting in a relatively quiet area of the Convention Center. If an expert decides to meet during meal times, each person in the group is responsible for his or her meal expense.

Experts: Experts are asked to register between mid December 2014 and January 31, 2015.

Students and Postdocs: A separate registration link will be posted on February 1, after Expert registration has closed.
