Wilson K Rumbeiha, Professor of Veterinary Toxicology, Department of Veterinary Diagnostic and Production Animal Medicine, College of Veterinary Medicine, Iowa State University, was one of this year’s recipients of the Society of Toxicology (SOT) International ToxScholar Outreach Grants.
The Merit Award is presented to a member of the Society that has distinguished themselves from among their peers through a lifetime of contributions to the field of Toxicology specifically in the areas of research, teaching, regulatory activities, consulting, and service to the Society.
SOT members were asked about their level of interest in and satisfaction with the overall content of the Communique newsletter blog; approximately 90% of respondents indicated they were quite satisfied.
Karen Louise Steinmetz passed away on August 19, 2013. She served on many Committees and in leadership roles in SOT Specialty Sections and Regional Chapters. She was also very active in the NorCal Regional Chapter of SOT, serving as both a Councilor (2007-2009) and as President (2011-2012).
