The Society of Toxicology (SOT) is pleased to announce that two new Endowment Funds have been established: the Donald E. Gardner (photo below) Inhalation Toxicology Education Award Fund and the Toxikon, A Preclinical Toxicology Organization, and Dr. Dharm Singh Association of Scientists of Indian Origin Fund.

The goal of the Donald E. Gardner Inhalation Toxicology Education Award Fund is “to encourage the education and training that will promote innovation in the field of Inhalation Toxicology.” The Fund will be used to provide stipends to early career scientists to gain specialized training in novel inhalation methodologies, including respiratory tract dosimetry and mechanisms of action of inhaled materials. A complete description of this Fund is on the SOT website. Dr. Gardner was a distinguished pioneer in the field of Inhalation Toxicology and his In Memoriam describes his contributions to a better understanding of the health effects of air pollutants, thereby promoting the health of workers and the public.

The Toxikon, A Preclinical Toxicology Organization, and Dr. Dharm Singh Association of Scientists of Indian Origin Fund was “created to inspire excellence in toxicology scholarship, leadership, and service to further the global outreach efforts of the SOT Association of Scientists of Indian Origin (ASIO) Special Interest Group (SIG).” The proceeds from the Fund will be used to support educational efforts of emerging toxicologists (undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral trainees) of Indian origin.” A complete description of this Fund is available on the SOT website.

The Society will match your contributions with a 1 to 1 dollar match of your support. This 1 to 1 dollar match is effective for contributions made between July 1, 2013 through June 20, 2016 or until $400,000 in matching funds have been expended. You can help build for the future of toxicology by providing a donation today.
