We are pleased to announce the Annual Meeting of the Genetic Toxicology Association (GTA) and inform you about the travel awards available to students and early stage investigators*. The Annual Meeting of the GTA is being held on May 3-4, 2018 in Clayton Hall at the University of Delaware in Newark, DE. Registration fees are waived for students who register by April 2.
* An early stage investigator is defined as any individual with less than 10 years combined work/research experience since completing their highest academic degree (BS, MS, PhD etc.)
- The GTA will grant up to 4 travel awards in the amount of $1,000 to attend this meeting. The awardees will be chosen by the GTA based on the abstract submitted to this meeting. . A limited number of abstracts submitted by Students and Early Stage Investigators will be considered for a brief oral presentation during the 40 minute Speed Session of Posters presentation on Thursday May 3.
- Also, the Environmental Mutagen and Genomics Society (EMGS) is offering a $500 dollar travel award for a GTA student/early stage investigator to attend the 2018 EMGS meeting in San Antonio, Texas being held September22–26, 2018. All abstracts from students and early stage investigators will automatically be considered for the EMGS Emerging Scientist Travel Award. The awardee will be chosen by the GTA based on the poster presentation at the GTA meeting.
Upon submitting an abstract by deadline, all students or young investigators are eligible for the travel award (http://www.gta-us.org). We welcome and encourage you to attend and contribute to our meetings!The Genetic Toxicology Association (GTA) is an educational and scientific organization that was founded in 1975. Its primary purpose is to promote the development of the science of genetic toxicology and to foster the exchange and dissemination of information concerning the field. Membership in the GTA is open to anyone interested in genetic toxicology. The majority of members come from the mid-Atlantic and New England regions. The membership includes professionals from a diverse cross-section of organizations: industrial, academic, governmental and commercial. The GTA thus provides a unique and important opportunity for scientists from different types of organizations to routinely and openly exchange knowledge, ideas, views and insights.
Students who attend the upcoming meeting will be exposed to discussion of both basic and applied science brought to bear on answering some of the most important topics in our field. As an added incentive, we will be sponsoring a breakfast for student-scientist at which students will be able to sit with GTA members from commercial laboratories, pharmaceutical companies and regulatory agencies, enabling them to ask about career trajectories in those various directions.Please feel free to contact us for more information.
