Established in June 2019, the purpose of this fund is to encourage the attendance of students, postdocs, or young investigators from the Pacific Northwest region to present their work at toxicology-oriented scientific meetings, such as the Annual Meeting of SOT. The fund will be used to support travel to the Annual Meeting of the Society of Toxicology and/or other toxicology-oriented meetings. Proceeds of the fund will be used to provide one or more travel awards, designated the “Dr. William M. Baird Travel Award,” to defray travel expenses to attend a toxicology-oriented scientific meeting, such as the Annual Meeting of SOT.
The fund was established to acknowledge the pioneering work and contributions of Dr. Baird to the field of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon toxicology and carcinogenesis and to provide funds to enable deserving individuals to attend the annual SOT meeting and other toxicology-oriented meetings.
