Among the flurry of seminars, exhibits, networking, and associated activities at the March Society of Toxicology (SOT) meeting (see story), came an extra honor for NIEHS toxicology liaison Christopher Weis, Ph.D. In recognition of his expertise and experience in toxicology, the American Board of Toxicology announced the election of Weis to its board of directors.

“I’m very pleased to see Chris recognized for the valuable contribution he can make at ABT,” said NIEHS and NTP Director Linda Birnbaum, Ph.D., a diplomate of ABT (DABT). Although Weis is serving in a personal capacity, rather than as a representative of NIEHS, his position as senior advisor to Birnbaum provides him a perspective that will be important in his role implementing standards for DABT eligibility and certification.

“I will work with other members to maintain and improve professional requirements for my colleagues who work in the field of toxicology and those who seek certification or recertification,” explained Weis.
