The Society of Toxicology would like to congratulate members who have achieved the status of Fellow of ATS during the past year. Since 1981, the Academy of Toxicological Sciences (ATS) has certified toxicologists who are recognized by their peers for their expertise and sound scientific judgment.
In July, Rep. Rod Blum (R-IA) introduced H.R.3136, The Enforcement Transparency Act of 2015, which would require the USDA to make the table of penalty guidelines for violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act used by the Investigative and Enforcement Services at APHIS public.
The Leading Edge in Basic Science Award is one of SOT’s newer and more notable awards, presented to a member or non-member scientist who, through research, has made a significant contribution to furthering understanding of fundamental mechanisms of toxicity.
The Society of Toxicology (SOT) Nominating Committee will prepare a slate of nominees for the 2016–2017 elected officers and elected standing committees this fall. Please consider nominating individuals committed to the mission of the Society.
