Description

The “Distinguished Neurotoxicologist Award” recognizes NTSS members who have made important high-impact scientific, regulatory or service contributions to our field. This award has been previously designated as “Distinguished Investigator” and “Distinguished Service” awards from NTSS. The Award will be made whenever a deserving individual is identified, but is not routinely given at any specified intervals.

Award

Engraved Plaque

An NTSS Distinguished Award Committee will be appointed each year to review the nominations and determine if an award will be made. Nominations will be considered up to 4 years.

The nominee must be a member, or retired member of NTSS, who has made significant scientific, regulatory OR service contributions over a sustained period of time (>15 years post-training) that have had major impact to the field of Neurotoxicology. In addition to an engraved plaque, the awardee will give a brief speech about their experience as a neurotoxicologist at the annual meeting.

Previous recipients of the Distinguished Investigator or Service Award were Dr. Toshio Narahashi (2001), Dr. Peter Spencer (2002), Dr. Bernard Weiss (2003), Dr. Herbert Needleman (2006), Dr. Joan Cranmer (2008), Dr. Deborah Cory-Slechta (2017) Dr. William Atchison (2018), Dr. Michael Aschner (2020), Dr. Pamela Lein (2022), and Dr. William Boyes (2023).

2.Are there two letters from Full members of SOT, at least one of whom is a member of NTSS?

3.Is at least one of the nominators from a different institution than the nominee?

4.Does the nomination letter describe the scientific, regulatory or service contributions of the nominee and the impact of the contributions to the field of Neurotoxicology? Only one of these criteria must be fulfilled for nomination, though all contributions across these areas can be considered as part of the award decision.

  • a.Scientific: Has deeply or broadly enrich understanding of mechanisms and role of toxicants or other environmental factors on the nervous system?; OR
  • b.Regulatory: Has greatly influenced and improved the scientific basis for regulatory or risk/safety assessment decisions related to neurotoxicology? OR
  • c.Service: Has remarkably enriched the community of neurotoxicologist to enhance communication, rigor, or intellectual pursuits in neurotoxicology

5.Have the contributions occurred over a substantial period of time? (>15 years post-training)

6.Has the nominee demonstrated leadership to neurotoxicology including involvement in NTSS or other meetings/organizations related to neurotoxicology (weighted value approximately 10–15%).
