Annual Meeting of the GTA
May 11-12, 2017
John M. Clayton Hall Conference Center
University of Delaware
Travel award eligibility is now CLOSED
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 11-12, 2017 in Clayton Hall at the University of Delaware in Newark, DE. Registration fees are waived for students who register by April 10.
* 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 4 travel awards in the amount of $750 to attend this meeting. The awardees will be chosen by the GTA based on the abstract submitted to this meeting. You will be required to participate in a brief podium presentationto provide a preview of the research being presented.
- 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 2017 EMGS meeting in Kansas City, Missouri being held September 9-13, 2017 in Raleigh, North Carolina. 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.
