Thanks to the generous contribution of an anonymous donor, the David Miller Awards Program support three important aspects of The Forum's activities. These include having premier speakers present at The Forum meetings, increasing networking opportunities for meeting attendees, and increasing the pipeline of scientists who value enhancing knowledge through dialogue.

The David Miller Scholar Session Award will support the travel expenses for speakers to present at the Winter and Summer Meetings.  The Scientific Meetings Committee will select the David Miller Scholar primary presenter and the two to three additional speakers to present on a topic of emerging interest (both toxicological in nature or from allied fields of science and science policy) to Toxicology Forum meeting attendees. A mechanism for recommending topics and speakers will be in place for the Winter 2019 meeting. The 2018 Summer David Miller Scholar Session information will be announced along with the entire 2018 meeting agenda.

The David Miller Speaker Travel Funds will be used to support speakers’ travel to Forum meetings with the goal of enhancing the scientific program content for proposals accepted by the Program Planning Committee. One of the goals of this award program is to increase international involvement in The Forum’s meetings. In distinction between the aforementioned Session Award, these Speaker Travel Funds may be used to support speaker travel in any session accepted for the Winter or Summer Meetings.

The David Miller Young Investigator Travel Award’s objective is to increase the pipeline of scientists who value dialogue as a method for building a better understanding. Winners will be encouraged to participate in future Scientific Program Committees.

Please continue to watch the Forum web site for more details about these new opportunities.
