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 scholars to meet with expert toxicologists during the 2019 Annual Meeting in Baltimore, March 10–14, 2019.

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 and time 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 three students, and they will receive brief backgrounds on the assigned students before the meeting.

The meeting typically consists of 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 by Friday, January 11, 2019.

Students and Postdocs: A separate registration link will be posted during the week of January 21, after Expert registration has closed.
