Global Senior Scholar Exchange Program
SOT Salus
The Society of Toxicology Global Senior Scholar Exchange program aims to increase the global impact of toxicology on human health and safety by working to strengthen toxicology programs and capacity at universities in developing countries. SOT will sponsor specific collaborations between selected mid-career to senior Scholars from academic institutions in developing countries and SOT Member Hosts from established academic, government, and industry toxicology programs worldwide. The program will enable the Scholar to visit the partnered organization, with the goal of improving toxicology education and training at the Scholar’s university (including identifying gaps in the core toxicology curriculum, defining barriers to program or student success, organizing courses or symposia on toxicology topics of high priority in the developing country, developing joint publications, or other beneficial activities). The program will also fund the Scholar to attend the SOT Annual Meeting as an opportunity to present research and establish scientific networks. Two Scholars will be funded from Developing Countries. The Scholars will be selected first, and then matched with Host applicants for best fit with training and research objectives. This program is not intended to provide equipment, laboratory supplies, or renovations to current facilities. The Scholars are responsible for their own insurance coverage during the exchange interval and will make travel arrangements through the SOT travel agency.

Scholar Criteria

The successful Scholar applicants will be

  • Employed in faculty position in a qualified university and affiliated with an existing toxicology program
  • Recognized as thought leaders in toxicology-related activities
  • Positioned professionally to influence toxicology training and research projects that support a graduate program in toxicology

The institution of the Scholar applicant will

  • Be located in a Developing Country
  • Have faculty members with training and research projects that support a graduate program in toxicology
  • Enable the Scholar to pursue this opportunity and the exchange visit of the Host

Host Researcher Criteria

The successful Host applicants will have

  • Research interests of potential mutual benefit to the specific Scholar
  • Ability to host a scientist for about 4 weeks (SOT will cover the associated costs)
  • Plans to support the relationship with the Scholar and the enhancement of toxicology at the Scholar institution
  • Ability to visit the Scholar institution

  • Note that more than one Host at the same or different institution can submit a coordinated application to host a particular Scholar.

The institution(s)of the Host(s)will

  • Have a successful toxicology program with a strong track record of research, training, publication, and outreach
  • Be located in a country with a strong science infrastructure
  • Have staff or faculty members with interest and prior experience in collaborating with institutions in other countries
  • Encourage the selected Host toxicologist to visit the Senior Scholar's institution (SOT will cover the associated costs up to the budgeted maximum)

Submit completed Applications to Betty Eidemiller.

Syngenta Fellowship Award in Human Health Applications of New Technologies

The Syngenta Fellowship Award in Human Health Applications of New Technologies is presented to either a third year (or later) graduate student or a postdoctoral trainee. Funding in the amount of $15,000 is to support mode-of-action research aimed at characterizing dose-dependent effects of xenobiotics on mammalian systems in such a way that the causal sequence of key events underlying toxicity is elucidated. The work should permit a quantitative basis for extrapolation of the results from animal bioassays or animal models (in silico, in vitro) to humans at relevant human doses. The awardee will receive funding to travel to the SOT Annual Meeting to accept the award and for travel to a Syngenta facility to present the results.

Toxicology Landmarks Program
SOT Salus

Toxicology Landmarks Program SOT is committed to creating a safer and healthier world by advancing the science of toxicology. In order to accomplish this mission, SOT will work to become a forum for novel discoveries and to increase the visibility of the organization and the members as scientific leaders and resources. The SOT Landmarks Program accomplishes these objectives by recognizing the scientists, science, and achievements that toxicology has made throughout the ages. Each year, the SOT Communications Committee evaluates entries for the Landmarks Program and selects an achievement for recognition. The chosen landmark will be recognized with a plaque that will be placed at an appropriate location to honor an individual, event, or notable achievement that contributed to the advancement of the science of toxicology. That achievement will be confirmed by the leadership of the Society and will be recognized at the SOT Annual Meeting and ToxExpo.

Undergraduate Diversity Student and Advisor Awards
SOT Salus

The Undergraduate Diversity Student and Advisor Awards provide support for awardees to participate in the three-day Undergraduate Education Program at the SOT Annual Meeting. This program is an introduction to the discipline of toxicology for undergraduate science majors and includes an introductory toxicology lectures, sessions on graduate school, and activities with an SOT mentor as well as participation in scientific sessions. Formerly known as the Minority Undergraduate Program, in 2016 the criteria for selection were broadened to include student from races and ethnic groups underrepresented in the sciences (for example, African American, Hispanic, Native American, or Pacific Islanders), first generation college, or from schools with low levels of NIH funding. Advisors who are not SOT members and mentor students who meet the selection criteria are eligible. Meeting registration and support for travel, lodging, and meals are provided for students and advisors. In the past, the program has been supported in part by NIH-MARC, NIEHS, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, and other supporters.
