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. Fellowship funding 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 travel support to travel to the SOT Annual Meeting to accept the award and for travel to a Syngenta facility to present the results. This is a one year, non-renewable award.

The award consists of a plaque, $15,000 in fellowship funds, travel support to the SOT Annual Meeting to accept the award, and travel support to a Syngenta site to present the results.

Criteria for award:

  • Third year (or later) graduate student or postdoctoral trainee employed by academic institution, federal/national laboratory, or research institute
