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 STP/CTPVSS Student Award will be announced at the CTPVSS 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.
