The Postdoctoral Assembly (PDA) of SOT is pleased to announce the 2013 Best Postdoctoral Publication Awards (BPPA). These awards recognize talented and outstanding postdoctoral researchers who have recently published exceptional papers in the field of toxicology as a result of postdoctoral research.
Serving as a Postdoctoral Representatives to a Regional Chapter, Specialty Section, or Special Interest Group is a great way for trainees to gain leadership experience and become involved in the workings of SOT and the PDA.
The SOT Regional Chapters, Specialty Sections, and Special Interest Groups confer a number of awards, principally to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Some of these awards are supported through Named Endowment Funds. Deadlines and criteria for these awards vary and are listed on the Awards
I first met Lois Gold in 1977 when she walked into my office to question me about a scientific paper we had just published. The paper was prompted by a government edict that children's cotton pajamas could not be sold unless they met very strict flammability standards.
