There is still time 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 2016 Annual Meeting in New Orleans, March 13–17, 2016.

Experts will choose a date and time for the meeting during the registration process 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 will be assigned no more than three students and 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 no later than Friday, January 22.

Students and Postdocs wishing to chat with an expert: A separate student/postdoctoral scholar registration link will be posted after this time.

The Chat with an Expert program includes “Chat with a Postdoc.” Chat with a Postdoc will match graduate students with postdocs for an informal meeting. Postdocs interested in serving as an expert should register now.
