Supported Grants, Fellowships, and Awards

Global Senior Scholar Exchange Program (GSSEP)

The Global Senior Scholar Exchange Program (GSSEP) aims to increase the global impact of toxicology on human health and safety by working to strengthen toxicology programs and capacity at universities in developing countries. GSSEP provides funding support for a senior-level scientist from a developing country to visit a senior-level scientist with an established toxicology program to gain insight into toxicology research programs. The host senior scientist returns the visit to offer further advice and guidance to the developing toxicology program.
