The Undergraduate Education Subcommittee is pleased to announce a new grant to increase undergraduate participation in Regional Chapter meetings. Exposure to toxicology during an undergraduate career contributes to the success of recruiting these students into professional or graduate programs.
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.
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.
This year marked the 29th Annual Undergraduate Diversity Program at the SOT Annual Meeting, held in San Antonio, Texas. Patricia E. Ganey, SOT 2018–2019 President, welcomed participants to the three-day program created for undergraduates to increase awareness of toxicology as a science and career.
With support from the SOT International ToxScholar Outreach program, I visited four rural research and teaching university campuses in India.
