2017 Graduate Student and Postdoc Award Recipients Named by the SOT Awards Committee

Colgate-Palmolive Award for Student Research Training in Alternative Methods and Postdoctoral Fellowship Award in In Vitro Toxicology

Colgate-Palmolive has been supporting Society of Toxicology (SOT) Awards dedicated to the development of alternative testing methods that reduce, replace, or refine the use of animals in toxicological research since 1988.

SOT Colgate-Palmolive-supported Award recipients are as follows:

Syngenta Fellowship Award in Human Health Applications of New Technologies

The SOT Awards Committee has named Fabian Grimm, PhD, Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, as the 2017 SOT Syngenta Fellowship Award Recipient in Human Health Applications of New Technologies. This award provides mode-of-action research funding to a third-year (or later) graduate student or postdoctoral trainee. The funding is intended to support mode-of-action research aimed at characterizing dose-dependent effects of xenobiotics on mammalian systems in such a way that the causal sequence of key events underlying toxicity is elucidated.

The work should permit a quantitative basis for extrapolation of the results from animal bioassays or animal models (in silicoin vitro) to humans at relevant human doses. The award consists of $15,000 in fellowship funds as well as travel to the SOT Annual Meeting to accept the award and travel to a Syngenta site to present the results. 

SOT Graduate Student Travel Support

This year 80 graduate students will receive Graduate Student Travel Support to attend the SOT 56th Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland. SOT Graduate Travel Support is provided, in part, with generous contributions from the SOT Endowment Fund. The complete list of graduate students receiving these awards will be available in the Historical Awards Listing on the SOT website following the Annual Meeting.
