Headshot Elana Elkin

This April, Project 2 Post-Doctoral Researcher Elana Elkin received the Edward W. Carney Trainee Award at the 2020 Annual Society of Toxicology (SOT) Meeting for the scientific quality of her abstracts and overall impact to the fields of reproductive and developmental toxicology or teratology. Elana is not only an excellent researcher and a long time member of PROTECT, but has also been recognized many times for her impact on the field of Toxicology.

The purpose of the Edward W. Carney Trainee award is to encourage education and training in reproductive and developmental toxicology. The fund is used to support graduate student or postdoctoral scholar travel to meetings that offer significant educational opportunities in the field of Reproductive and Developmental Toxicology, such as the annual meetings of SOT and the Society for Birth Defects Research and Prevention (BDRP). Recipients are selected for the quality of their research abstracts and their overall impact to the fields of reproductive and developmental toxicology or teratology.

This is a unique award because it is presented both at SOT and the Society for Birth Defects Research and Prevention. Edward W. Carney was a toxicology scientist studying birth defects, a life‐long member of both Societies, and was the President of the Society for Birth Defects Research and Prevention when it still had its original name, Teratology Society.

Congratulations to Elana on yet another award, we are so proud of you!
