Future of Regulatory and Safety Evaluation Endowment Fund
Established in September 2018 , this fund encourages research and training, scientific progress, collaboration, and the modernization of the fields of safety evaluation and/or regulatory toxicology. The fund, aligned with the Regulatory and Safety Evaluation Specialty Section, will be used primarily to provide a monetary award(s) to graduate students and/or postdocs based on scientific excellence and scientific progress toward novel, better, and fit for purpose, modern approaches to safety evaluation and/or regulatory toxicology. It can also be used to help provide support for Society of Toxicology programs that help foster sharing of knowledge related to scientific progress in the fields of safety evaluation and/or regulatory toxicology.
Safety evaluation in the field of toxicology is undergoing a paradigm shift to a predictive, mode-of-action-focused discipline. Advancing the science of safety evaluation and regulatory toxicology is a sine qua non condition to creating a safer and healthier world. This Endowment Fund is intended to recognize and disseminate the value of new approaches that represent the future of safety evaluation and regulatory decision-making.
