Current Committee composition:
Chair: Dan Levy
Members: Laura Custer, Krista Dobo, Patricia Escobar, Mark Powley, Dan Roberts,
and Zhanna Sobol
The members shall be invited by the EB and should equally represent the three pillars of our organization: Industry, Regulatory and Basic research. Under any circumstance a member of the committee may be elected as the winner of the award.
The nominations (at least 2), should be received by the Committee chair, no later than November 28. The Committee will meet by telecon to discuss nominations and provide the decision that will be communicated to the EB no later than February 28. A plaque will be provided to the winner. The winner will deliver a 15 minute talk at the Annual Meeting and will write an article for the Newsletter.
At the annual meeting, GTA presents an award to recognize contributions of a GTA member who has made particularly notable contributions to the field of genetic toxicology. The awardee is selected by a committee of past officers of GTA but any member of GTA may nominate an awardee. As we are sure each of you are aware, nominees get to make a short presentation at the annual meeting after an amusing and perhaps slightly embarrassing introduction by our Master of Ceremonies, Dan Benz.
All GTA members are invited to submit a nomination. The nomination package consists of a short (up to 1 page) description of the nominee’s contributions to GTA and the field of Genetic Toxicology. The nominee must be a current member of GTA and nominators are encouraged to discuss potential nominations with the nominee to make sure (s)he is aware of the nomination and will be able to attend the GTA meeting (May 11-12, 2017). Nominations should be sent to Dan Levy, Chair of the ESA selection committee. Please contact Dan or any member of the committee with questions about the award or the selection process.
