With the SOT Awards application deadline of October 9, now is the time to apply for an International ToxScholar Outreach Grant and become an Iinternational ambassador for toxicology.
Over the past few years, the Society of Toxicology has helped support many outstanding members for educational outreach travel outside of North America through the International ToxScholar Outreach Grant. I am pleased to report that, today, I joined NIEHS Director and SOT Past President Linda Birnbaum to sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between SOT and NIEHS. Because of these close connections, it seemed only natural for SOT and NIEHS to formalize our robust, working relationship. Essentially, SOT and NIEHS will be proceeding as we always have: working together to improve environmental health. As a feedback comment, one of the students stipulated that, although there are several webinars and online sources available about scientific writing, career development in toxicology, and other topics, hearing from one of the alumnus was remarkably provocative. After completion of all scheduled activities, students and faculty interacted with me asking simple yet important questions regarding career opportunities in the United States and research prospects.
I sincerely appreciate SOT's support of the outreach programs for developing countries.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has announced a call for images of NIH funded research to be posted to the NIH Image Gallery on Flicker and in the Funded Research album.

This series provides pharmaceutical industry and regulatory perspectives on this topic and will conclude with a webinar presented by Sherry Morgan, AbbVie, Inc., on June 21. The ANS Panel evaluates the safety of food additives, nutrient sources, and other substances intentionally added to food, but excluding flavourings and enzymes. The Institute aims to foster individual research projects of promising scientists and motivated research scholars with the overall goal to stimulate innovative research in the minority health and health disparities sciences.
The course was supported by an SOT International ToxScholar grant and included an up-to-date review of asbestos toxicity, health effects, and dose-response models to evaluate risks on population and individual levels. Presented in Russian, this was part of the mandatory course in industrial hygiene for senior level medical students. The series presents scientific information that is high-quality, cutting-edge, future-oriented toxicological science to provide a well-grounded foundation to inform the work of US FDA employees and is open to the public.
Human stem cell-derived cardiomyocyte (hiPSC-CMs) are increasingly used in drug discovery, toxicity assessment, and cell-based disease treatment. The epigenome is a dynamic regulatory framework that controls the use of genomic information to govern the response of cells, tissues, organs, and individuals to their environment.
The Education Committee invites SOT members, Regional Chapters, Special Interest Groups, and Specialty Sections to submit applications for partial or full travel support up to $1,250.
Almost 100 SOT members are employed within the NIEHS, and the institute has been an active participant and sponsor of sessions at the SOT Annual Meeting and other events.
The only difference is that we now have a public document acknowledging this beneficial and profound partnership.
Moreover, I engaged the students to participate in an activity through which they learned some dos and don’ts of scientific writing, which was liked by everyone and greatly appreciated by those students getting ready to construct their manuscripts for future publication. Moreover, we had to change the venue of this meeting from one auditorium to another hall in the middle to accommodate overwhelming attendance which reflected their enthusiasm. This meeting will offer a forum for sharing basic and applied research in toxicology and is aimed to convene international scientists to present their results related to the exposure to toxic agents, adverse effects, mechanisms of toxicity, preventive alternatives, normativity, and more to strengthen the science-policy interface to foster the progress towards sustainability. Miller regarding the importance of reproducibility and rigor, "As many of you may be aware, the National Institutes of Health released new guidelines a few months ago regarding rigor and reproducibility, a topic familiar to the readers of Toxicological Sciences. Gehring Diversity Student Travel Award was presented to Lisbeth Perez-Castro by Jorge Naciff, Chair of the Committee on Diversity Initiatives (CDI), during the SOT Annual Meeting at the CDI Reunion. Gehring Diversity Student Award recognizes a student who participated in the SOT Undergraduate Program, is from a group underrepresented in toxicology, and is presenting an abstract at the SOT Annual Meeting. Additionally, over fifty undergraduates joined the travel award recipients for the open Sunday activities. The Committee on Diversity Initiatives (CDI) would like to recognize and give special thanks to these wonderful program volunteers.
Many of this year’s participants have reported back on what a wonderful and affirming experience they had during the Undergraduate Program, and how valuable the experience will be as they look ahead to plan career paths and consider pursuing advanced degrees. Talks will describe key factors that impact the interpretation of nonclinical discovery and development studies.
This international meeting will bring scientists from around the world to the University of Rochester to discuss emerging knowledge about the AHR and its many ligands. Led by numerous nationally and internationally recognized experts in the field of medical toxicology, this course provides a broad overview of the scope of medical toxicology and a detailed perspective into current clinical and public health toxicological issues. The International Union of Toxicology (IUTOX) organizes the largest and most prestigious International Congress on Toxicology (ICT) every three years, offering the opportunity to learn the latest developments in toxicological science and regulation through general scientific sessions and continuing education courses. This conference will provide a forum for communication and interactions between toxicologists, pathologists, clinicians, pharmacologists, basic scientists, and other professionals working in the field of ocular toxicology. Career challenges faced by female trainees and professionals will be discussed including negotiating a competitive salary, climbing the career ladder, speaking up without appearing aggressive, and effective networking.
Yoga offers us exactly that; a bridge that yokes our outer world of skin, muscles and bones to our inner world of breath, soul and intuition. An aspect of this pasuk becomes a thread woven throughout the asana (posture) practice and gives the student a concept to reach for in their mind, heart, body and spirit as the session unfolds. Toxicology, and science in general, continues to suffer from a lack of sustained investment and commitment from academic institutions, corporations, and government entities. The basic principles of the use of animal models of disease is reviewed as well as the advantages and disadvantages of these models.
This live webinar is open only to members of the partnering societies of the SLC listed on the SLC website, and you must register to attend. However, the use of animal models, particularly for rare disease drugs, is increasing, and regulators are tasked with determining whether the data generated in these models are adequate to support drug development and approval of safe and effective therapies, with limited clinical trial data.
Patricia Brown, OLAW Director, discusses why this application section is required, what reviewers look for, and more. The CEF Panel addresses questions related to safety in the use of materials in contact with food (substances used to manufacture food contact materials and processes to recycle plastics intended for food contact), food enzymes, flavouring substances, processing aids, and processes.
This series will provide pharmaceutical industry and regulatory perspectives on this topic.
The aim of this webinar is to review the use of animal models of disease in the evaluation of exaggerated pharmacology and toxicity to improve the relevance and extrapolation of the assessments to the intended disease population. On December 3, a workshop on exposure and risk calculation was given to a smaller audience of approximately 30 students and faculty. Michael Kordi, the rector of the university, to discuss potential future collaboration with this large and important regional institution. The main focus will be two-fold: to improve our understanding of ocular toxicology, pharmacology, and safety assessment and to increase our understanding of the challenges associated with the development of the next generation of ocular drugs and devices. As a master regulator of gene expression, the epigenome is responsive to a diverse range of environmental factors including toxicant exposure, diet, stress, and socioeconomic circumstances. I cannot thank the SOT Education Committee enough for giving me this enthralling opportunity to make a strong impact on a group of students and faculty in India. The needs, obstacles, and questions the students had regarding career and education in the field of toxicology came to light and I did my best to provide answers to those issues.
Our journal has been ahead of most in addressing these issues and expanding editorial policies to improve the rigor, reliability, and reproducibility of the science that appears within. The award recipient is selected by the CDI and may be either a graduate student or undergraduate student.
The Sunday program is open to any undergraduate student who registered for the Annual Meeting, including the 2016 Pfizer SOT Undergraduate Travel Award Recipients.

Mindfulness meditation offers us a similar experience as we become aware of physical sensations while we sit, walk, do simple daily tasks with engaged attention or even lay down in a restful yet alert posture (this may be the most compassionate pose if you live with a chronic health condition that makes sitting or walking difficult). What an amazing introduction into the beauty and friendliness towards ones own sacred vessel these foundational yoga experiences were. She did not know she was meditating, did not have the vocabulary to describe it as such back then.
Mindfulness meditation offers us a similar experience as we become aware of physical sensations while we sit, walk, do simple daily tasks with engaged attention or even lay down in a restful yet alert posture (this mayA  be the most compassionate pose if you live with a chronic health condition that makes sitting or walking difficult). First, children will learn breathing techniques for relaxation, yoga poses and games as well as a full yoga curriculum teaching Tools For Life. We are being asked to train more students, perform more experiments, complete more paperwork, and publish more papers, yet the necessary investment in the infrastructure of science has not kept pace. In addition, specific examples of the use of these models in safety assessments are presented.
In general, nonclinical studies to support clinical trial initiation and ongoing development of small molecules and biologics are guided by ICH M3 and ICH S6; however, review divisions may apply regulatory flexibility. The work of the two Panels mainly concerns substances evaluated by EFSA before their use can be authorized in the European Union. The basic principles of the use of animal models of disease will be reviewed as well as the advantages and disadvantages of these models. Ternopol State Medical University has an enrollment of 4,063 students, including 1,200 foreign students from 62 countries.
Farland was the US Environmental Protection Agency Deputy Administrator, Science, from 2001–2006. Traditional toxicological paradigms have relied on factors such as age, genetic polymorphisms, and disease status to identify variability in responsiveness to environmental toxicant exposure; however, these factors are neither sufficient to faithfully identify differentially responsive individuals, nor are they modifiable factors that can be leveraged to mitigate adverse health effects of toxicant exposures.
A primary goal of this meeting is to feature new investigators, new technology, and new areas of concern, including potential effects on pollinators. There will be numerous career development events designed specifically for students and new and early stage investigators. In particular, the organizing committee has focused on the two challenges that were considered to be of the highest importance in the field. Topics span organ systems and disease models and will include up-to-date thinking about how the AHR is relevant to the development and function of many organ systems, to numerous diseases, as well as to drug discovery and environmental health. The faculty consists of well-recognized experts in their field of study and most are Board Certified by the American Board of Toxicology (ABT). IUTOX is proud to present this meeting where toxicologists from around the world will share their recent findings with colleagues and other ICTXIV delegates.
In particular, the committee has focused on the two challenges that were considered to be of the highest importance in the field. Jewish Spirituality also instructs us on how to live a life that is simultaneously secular and sacred through the ancient teachings found in the Torah, commentary on the Torah, historic and contemporary midrashim (stories), prayers, and mitzvot (commandments) and ultimately by listening for the still small voice of the Divine who dwells within each of us. Also incorporated into the practice is a Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy tool for self-inquiry.
These classes were an entryway, much like a garden-gate leading toward a flower edged path. As toxicologists we must engage legislators (local to global), regulators, and scientific administrators to emphasize the importance of the foundation on which biomedical research is conducted. In addition, specific examples of the use of these models in safety assessments will be presented. Korchevskiy had the opportunity to tell the audience about the importance of toxicological professions and the priorities for the Society of Toxicology. For more information including continuing education and abstract submission, please visit the conference website.
We continue to identify ways to enhance the quality of our science and welcome feedback from our readers to guide us in this process. Rychlik, Allan Somers, and Pamella Tijerina led and inspired the students throughout the entire three-day program.
An associated Gordon Research Seminar will be held in conjunction, led and organized by trainees, and featuring work in the area of genes, genetics, and genomics. For additional information and to register, please visit the Teratology Annual Meeting website. The question: a€?Whata€™s happening now?a€? is offered at selected moments within the structure of the class to allow the student to dive deeper into the present momenta€¦the simple yet potent question a€?Whata€™s happening nowa€? becomes a Gesher, linking each persons mental, physical, emotional and spiritual experience to the teaching as well as their own sacred intelligence. But looking back it is clear that that is exactly what she was doing; her young heart and mind, body and spirit KNEW what to do, how to be, how to just BE. Focusing on emerging ideas and transformative approaches will be a unifying basis from which participants working on every level from molecule to man can converge and discuss the past, present, and future of the Endocrine Disruptor Chemical (EDC) field.
Immunogenicity of these therapeutics is a significant confounding factor and often makes nonclinical risk assessment difficult.
To ensure an interactive meeting, registration is limited, so act soon to guarantee your place. Abstracts from students and new investigators received by March 4, 2016, will automatically qualify for potential travel awards. With patience and nurturance through asana practice, meditation and the wisdom of a kind and wise teacher, the cultivation of these seeds of love could begin, and their tender roots and shoots began to grow into a lifelong passion. Really, it could be said her mindfulness began much earlier perhaps at six or seven with long walks in the woods around her house and (was it hours?) reclining on her favorite dogwood bough gazing endlessly at the changing cloud formations in the vast sky above. Gehring had a strong interest in encouraging individuals from groups underrepresented in the sciences to enter biomedical sciences and toxicology.
Her first experiences of yoga as a Jewish spiritual practice was through Pa€™nai Or Fellowship, a Jewish Renewal Community in Philadelphia a few years later. Her formal sitting practice began in 2005 through the Institute for Jewish Spirituality, under the guidance of Rabbi Sheila Peltz Weinberg.
The development of these technologies is complicated by their complex and novel composition, the local cellular response often observed against these systems within the eye, and a lack of clear regulatory guidance in the field.
It wasna€™t until she met Rabbi Myriam Klotz through the Institute for Jewish Spirituality however, (where Laura completed an 18 month in-depth spiritual leadership program for Teen Educators), that she began to truly understand the potential of combining the ancient wisdom of Judaism and Yoga.
She receives ongoing support from Sheila and even though she might not realize it,A Sylvia Boorstein, who Laura had the pleasure of studying with at a 5 day silent meditation retreat co-facilitated by Sylvia and Sheila (a dynamic meditation duo!) Laura also had the honor of taking an online metta meditation class with Sylvia through Spirituality & Practice.
For additional information and to register, go to the Ocular Toxicology conference website.
Laura was fortunate to go on to be one of the first graduates of the Yoga & Jewish Spirituality Teachera€™s Certification Program at Elat Chayyim with Rabbi Klotz and Diane Bloomfield (author and founder of the Torah Yoga Association in Jerusalem, Israel).
Laura has participated in several online meditation courses with Gil Fronsdal through Audio Dharma,A and a heart opening online class with Janice Lynne Lundy called Buddha Chicks. Maria Neira, Director, Public Health and Environment Department, World Health Organization; Dr. She was called upon as a featured educator at events such as Cornerstone Fellowship, a leadership program offered through the Foundation for Jewish Camping and Jewbilee, a retreat offered through TCI (The Curriculum Initiative). Laura was also interviewed by author Paula Amann and featured with several other Jewish yoga teachers in the summer issue of Jewish Womena€™s Magazine 2008.
