Biological Modeling SS Best Trainee Abstract Award

Deadline: December 31

Eligibility: Any student (graduate or undergraduate) or postdoctoral scholar whose abstract has been accepted by SOT for a presentation at the upcoming Annual Meeting may be considered eligible. A “Best Trainee Abstract Award Committee” will be formed to select eligible papers.

The Biological Modeling Specialty Section (BMSS) will present the BMSS Best Trainee Abstract Award to the lead author of a biologically based computational modeling abstract at the BMSS Business Meeting and Reception during the SOT Annual Meeting. An achievement plaque will be presented to the lead author of the winning abstract.

Any student or postdoctoral abstract submitted to SOT for the Annual Meeting which indicates a biologically based computational modeling focus or impact may be considered for this award.

The Best Trainee Abstract Award Committee will be composed of BMSS member volunteers and led by the BMSS Vice President-Elect. The Committee will consider any nominated abstracts and will also search all abstracts submitted to SOT for the Annual Meeting to identify eligible abstracts. Each candidate abstract will be judged based on innovation, quality of modeling, potential or realized the impact on the field, utility in toxicology/risk assessment, and other criteria deemed important to the Committee.
