Drug Discovery Toxicology SS Emil A. Pfitzer Student Award

Deadline: February 7


This award was created to honor the legacy of Dr. Emil A. Pfitzer and was a great gift for our Specialty Section; your continued monetary support of this award is both encouraged and necessary.

The Emil A. Pfitzer Drug Discovery Student Award Fund of the SOT Endowment supports our Specialty Section by providing awards to outstanding students that apply modern toxicologic science in the field of drug discovery. The Pfitzer Fund was created by the initial generous contributions from Hoffmann-LaRoche, the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM) and the family and friends of Emil Pfitzer. Dr. Pfitzer worked at Hoffman-LaRoche for 22 years serving as Vice President of Toxicology and Pathology, where he championed the use of mechanistic toxicology. After retiring from Roche, he served five years as the President of RIFM. Dr. Pfitzer also served as President of the Society of Toxicology in 1985-1986.

The DDTSS was given the stewardship of this award by SOT Council and this gift needs our continued support to ensure that the Fund will benefit our specialty section in perpetuity. As a member of DDTSS, please consider donating money to honor Dr. Pfitzer's memory and to ensure that our endowment can be sustained for many more years.
