SOT Awards

Comparative Toxicology, Pathology, and Veterinary SS STP Student Award

Deadline: December 30

The CTPVSS/STP Student Award was created to encourage students interested in research and/or careers in the field of Toxicologic Pathology. The recipient will receive $500 from the CTPVSS, and a free STP Annual Meeting registration, free student membership to STP for one year, and $1,500 from STP to be used towards lodging and travel to the STP Annual Symposium, which will be held in June each year.

To be eligible to compete for this award, applicants must be individuals who are currently enrolled in a program leading to a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree (DVM, VMD), MS, PhD, or be in a residency or other postdoctoral program in pathology or toxicology, or completed training in the year preceding the SOT meeting. Trainees in clinical and/or anatomic pathology are encouraged to apply for the award.

Applicants must be members of CTPVSS and preference will be given to applicants having long-term association with CTPVSS.

Applicants must be the first author of an SOT-accepted abstract concerning research in toxicology, pathology or a related field that presents work illustrating the integrated application of pathology (morphologic, or clinical pathology) endpoints with other scientific approaches, e.g. biomarkers, molecular or systems biology, imaging, or in vitro-in vivo correlations, to enhance the understanding of whole animal or tissue toxicologic responses. The abstract may be for either a poster or platform presentation at SOT, but a poster must be prepared by the awardee for the STP meeting.

Applicants must also submit the following: [a] a copy of their abstract (the candidate must be the first author and the presenting author), [b] a letter (maximum one page) describing their research project and professional goals, [c] a letter of sponsorship from an academic advisor who is a member of SOT or STP, and [d] a CV.

The selection for the award will be determined by a combined panel of independent SOT and STP judges and will be based on the scientific merit of the abstract, the applicant’s commitment to toxicologic pathology, CV, and recommendation.

The recipient of the CTPVSS/STP Student Award will be announced at the CTPVSS business meeting during the SOT Annual Meeting, and will be acknowledged at the STP Annual Symposium, with the monetary award presented at or immediately following the STP Annual Symposium. Awardees are expected to present their work at the CTPVSS meeting.
