Awards

Award Title Travel Award 
Award Description Trainees (veterinary students, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows)are encouraged to apply for a TEPSS-sponsored student travel award to attend the SOT Annual Meeting. Applicants must be individuals who are currently enrolled in a program leading to a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree (DVM, VMD), M.S., Ph.D., or graduated with their Veterinary Medical Degree, Ph.D., or M.S. in the year preceding the SOT meeting. Applicants must also be SOT members or have an application pending.

Applicants must be the first author of an SOT-accepted abstract concerning hypothesis-driven research in toxicology that presents work illustrating the integrated application of pathology (morphologic or clinical pathology) endpoints with other scientific approaches, e.g. molecular or systems biology, imaging, or in vitro-in vivo correlations, to enhance the understanding of whole animal or tissue toxicologic responses.

Applicants must also submit the following: [a] a copy of their abstract (the candidate must be the first author and the presenting author), [b] a letter (maximum two pages) describing their research project and professional goals,[c] a letter of sponsorship from an academic advisor who is a member of SOT, and [d] a CV.

Abstracts will be judged based on scientific merit and clarity of presentation. Consideration will also be given to candidates whose professional goals include the incorporation of the science of pathology in their research work.

TEPSS Travel Award winners will present a brief (5 minute/5 slide maximum) synopsis of their research project at the TEPSS Reception during the SOT Annual Meeting, where they will be recognized for their accomplishment with a plaque and a monetary award of $1,000.

This award will complement other TEPSS awards, thus applications for multiple awards are encouraged.

Award Title Roger O. McClellan Student Award - Toxicologic and Exploratory Pathology SS 
Award Description Special consideration will be given to abstracts that exemplify the role of comparative medicine in evaluating the safety/risk of exposure to chemicals or physical agents.

Nominees for the Award must be individuals who are enrolled in a program leading to a DVM or degree or in post-DVM residency or graduate program. The awardee must be a member of the Society of Toxicology (any level) or have an application pending. The abstract must be submitted and accepted through the regular SOT submission process. This research must be hypothesis driven.

Please email applications to one of the following CVSS/TEPSS joint selection committee members: Vinicius Carreira representing TEPSS or Sunish Mohanan representing CVSS by January 14th prior to the SOT Annual Meeting at which the presentation will be made.

The award application must include the following:
  • a letter of recommendation from the mentor
  • a one-page statement of the applicant’s scientific interest
  • a current CV
  • a copy of the submitted abstract
The awardee must attend the receptions for both the Comparative and Veterinary Specialty Section (CVSS) and the Toxicologic and Exploratory Pathology Specialty Section (TEPSS). The award will be given at one of these receptions and the recipient will be acknowledged at the other. The award winner will present a brief (5 minute/5 slide maximum) synopsis of their research at each reception. Award recipients will be selected by a committee jointly appointed by CVSS and TEPSS. This Award will complement existing awards of these two Specialty Sections, thus applications for multiple awards are encouraged.

Please email one of the following CVSS/TEPSS joint selection committee members: Vinicius Carreira (VCarreir@ITS.JNJ.com) representing TEPSS or Sunish Mohanan (sunish.x.mohanan@gsk.com) representing CVSS if you should have any questions.

Award Title STP Student Award 
Award Description The TEPSS/STP Student Award was created to encourage students interested in research and/or careers in the field of Toxicologic Pathology. The recipient will receive $500 from the TEPSS Specialty Section, and a free STP Annual Meeting registration, free student membership to STP for one year, and $1,500 from STP to be used towards lodging and travel to the STP Annual Symposium, which will be held in June each year.

To be eligible to compete for this award, applicants must be individuals who are currently enrolled in a program leading to a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree (DVM, VMD), M.S., Ph.D., or be in a residency or other postdoctoral program in pathology or toxicology, or completed training in the year preceding the SOT meeting. Trainees in clinical and/or anatomic pathology are encouraged to apply for the award.

Applicants must be the first author of an SOT-accepted abstract concerning research in toxicology, pathology or a related field that presents work illustrating the integrated application of pathology (morphologic, or clinical pathology) endpoints with other scientific approaches, e.g. biomarkers, molecular or systems biology, imaging, or in vitro-in vivo correlations, to enhance the understanding of whole animal or tissue toxicologic responses. The abstract may be for either a poster or platform presentation at SOT, but a poster must be prepared by the awardee for the STP meeting.

Applicants must also submit the following: [a] a copy of their abstract (the candidate must be the first author and the presenting author), [b] a letter (maximum one page) describing their research project and professional goals,[c] a letter of sponsorship from an academic advisor who is a member of SOT or STP, and [d] a CV.

The selection for the award will be determined by a combined panel of independent SOT and STP judges and will be based on the scientific merit of the abstract, the applicant’s commitment to toxicologic pathology, CV, and recommendation.

The recipient of the TEPSS/STP Student Award will be announced at the TEPSS Luncheon during the SOT Annual Meeting, and will be acknowledged at the STP Annual Symposium, with the monetary award presented at or immediately following the STP Annual Symposium.
