Neurotoxicology SS Toshio Narahashi Graduate Student Poster Competition Award 1st Prize Sponsored by Battelle
Deadline: February 13
Graduate students must be in attendance at the SOT Annual Meeting; the trainee must be a student member of SOT and NTSS (or show evidence of application) and meet the SOT criteria for classification as a graduate student at the time of the Annual Meeting. Graduate students giving platform presentations at the Annual Meeting are also eligible if they prepare a poster summarizing their talk. Advisors or mentors who are not members are strongly encouraged to join NTSS.
An extended abstract and a letter of support from the graduate student's advisor outlining the graduate student's independence and role on the research should be submitted to Mary Gilbert
, Chair of the NTSS Student and Postdoctoral Awards Committee, by February 13
. The extended abstract should consist of the abstract originally submitted to SOT, a 2-4 sentence description of the impact of the research, up to one page of key figures or data, and a 3-5 sentence conclusion (total of 3 pages). The extended abstracts will be reviewed by a committee prior to the meeting and will comprise 50% of the score. The remaining portion of the score will be based on the face-to-face interviews at your posters on Monday late afternoon. At this point we anticipate at least 3 judges will evaluate each poster.
Participants will also be required to send a PDF of their complete poster to Dr. Gilbert by March 3
to facilitate the judging (this presubmission of the poster need not be the final version presented at the SOT Annual Meeting).
In addition to recognition plaques for each winner, monetary prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third place. Awardee will be announced at the annual NTSS Social/Business Meeting at the SOT Annual meeting.
February 13 (abstract and letter submission); March 3 (poster submission)
