John M. Clayton Hall Conference Center
University of Delaware
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 will be held at the University of Delaware located in Newark, Delaware on May 8-10, 2019. Registration fees are waived for all students who register before April 8. All registrations include breakfast and lunch on May 9th and 10th, and dinner on May 9th. We hope you will join us and share this announcement with your faculty colleagues and any students interested in attending.
* 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 6 travel awards in the amount of $1,000 USD to attend this meeting. The awardees will be chosen by the GTA based on the poster abstract submitted to this meeting. Upon submitting an abstract by the deadline all students or early stage investigators are eligible for the travel award. Poster abstract submission deadline is March 4, 2019.
Also, the Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society (EMGS) is offering a $500 USD travel award for a GTA student/early stage investigator to attend the 2019 EMGS meeting in Washington, DC being held September 19-23. 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 early stage 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. There is ample opportunity for students to interact 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.
