Opens Aug 14 2023 12:00 AM (EDT)
Deadline Feb 14 2024 11:59 PM (EST)
Description

Donald E. Gardner was a distinguished pioneer in the field of Inhalation Toxicology. His research helped to better understand health effects of air pollutants, thereby promoting the health of workers and the public. His mentorship of numerous individuals played a key role in their development as contributing scientists. This award is made possible by the Donald E. Gardner Inhalation Toxicology Education Award Fund of the SOT Endowment.

This award will be used to provide stipends to early career scientists (students, postdocs, or scientists within 10 years of advanced degree) to either 1) gain specialized training in novel/emerging inhalation toxicology methodologies by training in another laboratory, attendance at a workshop/class, or training at a core facility OR 2) to develop educational webinars on innovative methods in the fields of Inhalation and Respiratory Toxicology that will be presented to the IRSS.

The recipient will receive an engraved plaque and the monetary award.

The goal of this award is to enhance the ability of Gardner Award recipients to contribute to better understanding innovative inhalation/respiratory techniques, as well as the potential hazards/risks of inhaled materials.

Gardner Award recipients will be selected by the IRSS based on the following criteria:

  1. Member of SOT (any category of membership is acceptable).
  2. Enrolled in a graduate program relevant to inhalation toxicology or within 10 years of receiving advanced degree in a field relevant to respiratory/inhalation toxicology.
  3. Clarity and thoroughness of application describing either:
    1. The specialized training that they will undertake in the science of inhalation and respiratory toxicology, how this training is innovative, how the recipient intends to use the knowledge gained to advance the science of inhalation toxicology, and details on the training opportunity


      OR

    2. The webinar(s) that will be developed, why the topic(s) are valuable/innovative in inhalation/respiratory toxicology, who the target audience includes, and where the webinar will be presented (including but not limited to IRSS).
  4. Monetary request is $2,000 or less.

Post-award Recipient Responsibilities:

Following completion (within 6 months after activity has concluded) of the activity funded by the award, the recipient will be required to send IRSS a brief (less than 250 words) description of the impact of the award on the career development of the recipient. The impact description may be highlighted in the IRSS newsletter and at the IRSS reception during the Annual SOT Meeting.

Questions? Email the Vice President-Elect of the IRSS, Christopher Reilly.
