Laura Armstrong awarded
Society of Toxicology Colgate‐Palmolive Award
Laura Armstrong has been selected to receive the prestigious Society of Toxicology Colgate‐Palmolive Award for Student Research Training in Alternative Methods. The purpose of the Colgate‐Palmolive Award for Student Research Training in Alternative Methods is to enhance graduate student research training using in vitro methods or alternative techniques to reduce, replace or refine use of animals in toxicological research. The training helps toxicology graduate students enhance their thesis or dissertation research. The overall goal is to support the replacement, reduction, or refinement of currently used animal models in toxicology research and testing. Laura’s award will be presented next March at the 53rd SOT Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona.
