The GSLC Communications Subcommittee is announcing an exciting new contest: The YouTox Video Challenge! The YouTox Video Challenge is a competition for students and postdocs to make a video about toxicology, more specifically, why they became a toxicologist.
The Northland Regional Chapter held its well-attended 2012 fall meeting on Monday, October 22 at the Minnesota Department of Health in St. Paul, Minnesota. The title of the meeting was Things Alchemists, Assassins and Mad Hatters Didn’t Know about Metal Toxicology.
Critical functions of the SOT’s Research Funding Committee include developing mechanisms to increase funding for toxicology in all sectors, identifying conventional and alternative sources of funding for toxicology research, and providing grantsmanship training for SOT members.
Overall the NCSOT Annual Meeting was successful by promoting career development for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows and because of the three-cutting edge presentations on whole organism toxicity assessments of critical organ systems.
