The SOT Translational Impact Award is presented to a member or nonmember scientist whose outstanding clinical, environmental health, or translational research during the last 10 years has improved human and/or public health in an area of toxicological concern. The recipient of this award will be invited to deliver the Translational Impact Award Lecture at the 2020 SOT Annual Meeting in Anaheim, California.
Scientists leading multidisciplinary teams who contribute to addressing toxicity-related health problems are excellent candidates for this award. Nominees can be toxicologists or other scientists with any background (clinicians, basic scientists, epidemiologists, engineers, etc.).
Like many SOT awards, nominations for the Translational Impact Award require a primary and a seconding letter of nomination from Full members of the Society that document and describe the nominee’s significant contributions to toxicology. The nominee’s current CV (10 pages maximum) also is required. Please note that letters simply listing accomplishments found in the CV are not sufficient without analysis and discussion of the important contributions contained therein and of how the nominee meets the award criteria.
The nomination deadline for the Translational Impact Award is October 9, 2019. If you know a colleague or scientist deserving of this award, please begin the nomination process today by visiting the “Translational Impact Award” web page on the SOT website.
