SOT Distinguished Toxicology Scholar Award: Nominate a Well-Qualified Candidate

The Society of Toxicology (SOT) Distinguished Toxicology Scholar Award is one of the preeminent Society honors. It is presented to a member of SOT who has made substantial and seminal scientific contributions to the understanding of toxicology. The prime consideration for this award is scientific accomplishments. The winner of this award will be invited to deliver the Distinguished Toxicology Scholar Award lecture at the 2016 Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana.

If you know of a scientist deserving of such a high honor, please take time to nominate him or her by visiting the Awards Section of the SOT Website. Nominations should be made for members who have made significant and influential contributions to, or made strides advancing, the understanding of the science of toxicology. Nominees should be active scientists currently involved in toxicological research. Nomination deadline is October 9, 2015!

As with the majority of SOT Awards, nominations for the Distinguished Toxicology Scholar Award should include the nominee’s CV and both a primary and seconding letter of nomination from Full Members of the Society. Please note that letters simply listing accomplishments found in the CV are not sufficient without analysis and discussion of the importance of the contributions and how the nominee meets the award criteria.
