Overview:

Society of Toxicology

Founded in 1961, the Society of Toxicology (SOT) is a professional and scholarly organization of scientists from academic institutions, government, and industry representing the great variety of scientists who practice toxicology in the US and abroad. The Society’s mission is to create a safer and healthier world by advancing the science and increasing the impact of toxicology.

SOT operates under the guiding principles of:

  • Serving the needs of the scientific discipline and our members to enhance human, animal, and environmental health
  • Life-long learning and intellectual scientific stimulation
  • Diversity of representation in all activities of the Society
  • Integrity

SOT is committed to diversity and inclusiveness in all of its activities. We assert that diversity and inclusiveness include many factors, such as gender, race/ethnicity, employment sector, nationality, geographic location, physical ability, and scientific expertise and perspective. Embracing diversity and optimizing inclusion maximizes the range of creativity and innovation in our Society and our science.

Maryanne Stock Student Research Award

This award will be given to support a student's thesis/dissertation/summer research project in toxicology. The intent of this award is to encourage students to formulate and conduct meaningful research in the field of toxicology and to assist in the support of that research. Research proposals will be judged by the Awards Committee primarily on the basis of quality of the study design and educational environment. Consideration will be given to the quality and clarity of the proposal. 

The student must present his/her research in poster format at an AE-SOT Spring Meeting unless the student has completed his/her degree requirements and is no longer working/residing in the region served by the AE-SOT Chapter. If the recipient cannot attend, he/she is required to submit a one page report on the results of the work funded by the award as well as an accounting of how the award was spent. The student is encouraged to present the research at the National SOT Meeting, although this is not a requirement. A student cannot receive this award more than once.
