SOT member Vanessa Fitsanakis describes her hassle-free experience applying for the SOT ToxScholar program, as well as how ToxScholar funding allowed her to share information about toxicology to undergraduates.
As part of the ToxScholar program, a few regulatory toxicologists from the US federal government visited Trinity Washington University in Washington, DC, to start a dialogue with the students at Trinity about pathways to careers in toxicology.
The Education Committee is pleased to announce that there are two recipients of the Society of Toxicology (SOT) International ToxScholar funding for the year 2018–2019.
A little over a year ago, one of my mentors, Dr. Barbara Kaplan, visited the Mississippi University for Women (MUW, the “W”) as a ToxScholar. Contrary to its name, MUW is now a co-ed university, and while it offers degrees in a variety of fields, toxicology is not one of them.
On March 27, I had the opportunity to participate in the Biology research seminar at Westminster College, in Westminster, PA. This is my second visit to Westminster, but this time I had the opportunity to present about opportunities in toxicology and my collaborative research with undergraduates.
