Eurotox 2014: ECETOC Christa Hennes Young Scientist Award

7-10 September 2014, Edinburgh, Scotland

In 2014, the award has been renamed in memory of Dr Christa Hennes who sadly passed away in December 2013 and who was instrumental in organising this award. This is a Best Poster Award for toxicological research into mechanisms and risk assessment, selected by a panel in which ECETOC participates. The winner receives a monetary prize and a free invitation to the following year’s EUROTOX meeting.

The 2014 winner is Dr Laura Pastor Castro of the University of Navarra, Spain, for her abstract “Sex-dependent gene expression of kidney transporters after ochratoxin A exposure in F344 rats”.
