As a PhD student at UC Berkeley, I have had the privilege of attending various conferences in the fields of public health, toxicology, and cancer biology. I have, however, yet to attend a conference that focuses entirely on my research interest of endocrine disruptors.
Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are ubiquitous in the environment and have been shown to adversely affect human health and ecology. I learned more about EDCs by attending the 11th Environmental Endocrine Disruptors Gordon Research Conference (GRC) held in Les Diablerets, Switzerland.
SOT offers several awards for undergraduate students considering a career in toxicology. Undergraduate Diversity Program and Endowment awards for 2019 have formally launched on July 1, 2018. We encourage students to submit an application and faculty to share the opportunities with their students.
I decided to pursue a career as a scientist because of my early childhood experiences near a fenceline community and various programs that piqued my interest in scientific research. My scientific journey began at Baton Rouge Magnet High School.
The Society of Toxicology (SOT) has learned of the passing of David Randall Cawthon, PhD, several months ago. Dr. Cawthon joined SOT in 2008 and was a member of the Occupational and Public Health Specialty Section and the South Central Regional Chapter.
