The Enhancement of Animal Welfare Award is presented annually to an SOT member in recognition of contributions made to the advancement of toxicological science through the development and application of methods that replace, refine, or reduce the need for experimental animals. The achievement recognized may be either a seminal piece of work or a long-term contribution to toxicological science and animal welfare.

2019 Fitzpatrick and Kaplan.pngAs with most SOT Awards, nominations for the Enhancement of Animal Welfare Award should include the nominee’s abbreviated CV (10 pages maximum) and both a primary and seconding letter of nomination from SOT Full members. These letters should describe 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 taken into consideration.

If you know an SOT member that has advanced the welfare of research animals or made other major contributions to public awareness regarding animal research in toxicology, submit a nomination for this award today.
