It was a very good meeting for ETOX student, Virunya Bhat. She and Dr. Susan Hester of the EPA organized a workshop entitled, “Toxicogenomic Technologies Can Improve the Assessment of Xenobiotic-induced Liver Injury and Inform Human Relevance”. They also chaired the session. I understand that their session was scheduled into a very large room and that it was filled.
On another note, Virunya's paper that was published in Toxicological Sciences was selected by the Risk Assessment Specialty Section as "One of the Best Papers Advancing the Science of Risk Assessment" for 2013. Each of the authors received a certificate which was presented as the Specialty Section Reception. Mine (Dr. Eastmond's) is shown below. More information about Virunya's paper can be found here. Our congratulations to Virunya for these two nice accomplishments.
