Biological Modeling SS Best Paper Award
Deadline: December 31
Eligibility: This award is open to all SOT members. A “Best Paper Award Committee” will be formed to select eligible papers.
The Biological Modeling Specialty Section (BMSS) will give a “Best Paper Award” for the authors of a biologically based computational modeling paper published in peer-reviewed literature (in hard copy or online) during the calendar year preceding a given SOT Annual Meeting. The award will be presented at the BMSS Business Meeting and Reception at the SOT Annual Meeting.
The Best Paper Award Committee will be composed of BMSS member volunteers and led by the BMSS Vice President. The Committee will search Medline and other databases to identify candidate papers. Each candidate paper will be judged based on innovation, quality of modeling, quality of the manuscript, impact on the field, utility in toxicology/risk assessment, and other criteria. At least one of the authors of the paper must be a SOT member.
