Geoffrey Hogan Memorial Award
The Dr. Geoffrey K. Hogan, PhD, DABT Memorial Scholarship/Travel Award is a $1000 award that will be given annually in memory of Dr. Geoffrey Hogan (June 9, 1940–February 23, 2011). The award was started in 2011 through the generosity of Huntingdon Life Sciences. Mrs. Barbara Hogan has graciously agreed to continue this tribute.
Dr. Hogan earned his MA in Public Health and later a PhD in Toxicology from the University of Michigan. Among his many accomplishments, Dr. Hogan was the President of Bio/dynamics (currently Huntingdon Life Sciences), and later Director of Applied Bioscience International (ABI). Dr. Hogan had a great interest in the application of toxicology to the protection of human health. This award is tribute to his efforts towards this goal.
