The Executive Committee of the International Dose-Response Society has created an annual award of excellence for outstanding work in the field of low dose-response in the following three areas: Outstanding Career Achievement, Outstanding New Investigator and Outstanding Leadership. This award serves to identify and recognize scientists, scholars, and teachers who have contributed to a deeper understanding of the relationships between “dose and response” and/or to the distribution of that understanding to others. The awards are presented at our annual conference on, Dose-Response: Implications for Toxicology, Medicine, and Risk Assessment, at the University of Massachusetts/Amherst.
