The SOT Distinguished Toxicology Scholar Award is one of the Society’s highest honors. Presented to a member who has made substantial and seminal scientific contributions to the understanding of toxicology, the prime consideration for this award is scientific accomplishments. The recipient will be invited to deliver the Distinguished Toxicology Scholar Award Lecture at the 2020 Annual Meeting in Anaheim, California.
Nominees should be active scientists currently involved in toxicological research. If you know a colleague deserving of this accolade, please nominate this scientist by visiting the Awards section of the SOT website. The nomination deadline for this award is October 9, 2019.
As is the case for many SOT awards, nominations for the Distinguished Toxicology Scholar Award should include the nominee’s abbreviated CV (10 pages maximum) and both a primary and a seconding letter of nomination from Full members of the Society. These letters should present in layman’s terms an analysis of how the significant contributions to toxicology by the nominee apply to the criteria of the award. Please note: the Awards Committee will review only the two letters required to complete the nomination; no additional letters will be considered.
