MENTORING OPPORTUNITIES
Chat With an Expert is an opportunity for graduate students to interact with more senior researchers and learn about the myriad fields that toxicology has to offer. This year, Consortium scientist Dr Monita Sharma is participating in the programme.

Dr Amy Clippinger is participating in a mentoring reception, sponsored jointly by the Molecular & Systems Biology, Mechanisms, and In Vitro and Alternative Methods Specialty Sections. RVSP required (see here).

OPEN INTERVIEWS
