Invitation to Participate in SOT Chat with an Expert in Phoenix

v2Mixer_B_for website.jpgThe Graduate Student Leadership Committee (GSLC) is extending an invitation to participate in this year’s “Chat with an Expert” (CWAE) program. CWAE provides the opportunity for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to meet with expert toxicologists at the 2014 Annual Meeting in Phoenix. 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. 

During the registration process, experts will choose a date, time, and location for a meeting that is convenient for their schedule. Graduate students and postdocs then will be able to select experts based on research, professional interests, and time availability. 

Each expert, who will be assigned no more than 3 students, will receive brief backgrounds on these students before the meeting. The CWAE meeting can include a meal (breakfast, lunch, or dinner), be a chat over coffee or snack, or simply an informal exchange in a relatively quiet area of the Phoenix Convention Center. If an expert decides to meet during meal times, each person in the group is responsible for his or her expense. Pictured above are Students and Postdocs signing up for CWAE at the 2013 Mixer held in conjunction with the SOT 52nd Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas.

Experts:  Experts are asked to register by February 28, 2014. Expert toxicologists can sign up now for this popular program. 

Students and Postdocs:  A separate registration link will be sent to you in early March after Expert registration has closed.
