Harold Kalant Award

The department is seeking nominations for the newly created 'Harold Kalant Award'. 

The Harold Kalant Award is given annually for an outstanding scientific publication of original research by a graduate student in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology. Only first authors will be considered. For the 2020 award, papers with accepted dates of Jan 1, 2019 to Dec 31, 2019 will be considered. Papers should be self-nominated by the student with an explanation of impact of the manuscript on the respective field. For multi-authored papers, the percentage contribution by the first author needs to be indicated in the self nomination package. 

A diverse committee of faculty members will evaluate the submitted applications. The selection of the winning publication will be based on both the scientific quality of the research described in the manuscript, and the maturity and clarity with which the Discussion explains the significance of the work in the context of the broader research field to which it pertains.

2020 Award committee Chair: Dr. Lenny Salmena
Deadline for submissions: August 15, 2020
