Special Issue - 2018 Awards recognising scientific and professional excellence 

As we wrap up the 2018 EUROTOX congress, we want to highlight the various awards presented in Brussels, and congratulate the respective recipients for their scientific contributions and professional excellence in toxicology. 

EUROTOX honours annually a distinguished European toxicologist with the Merit AwardThis year's Merit Award recipient is Prof. Corrado L. Galli. 

The Bo Holmstedt Memorial Foundation (BHMF) Lecture Award is presented every year during the EUROTOX congress to recognise scientists who have made outstanding research contributions to the science of drug or chemical toxicology. This year's BHMF award recipient is Prof. Nigel J Gooderham.

Early career toxicologists are encouraged by the annual Early Career Awards for best poster presentation in two distinct categories. The EUROTOX Gerhard-Zbinden award for drug-oriented toxicological research was presented to Dr. Timothy Allen, University of Cambridge (UK) for this work on "Computational approaches for predicting Molecular Initiating Events", while the ECETOC Christa Hennes Award for toxicological research into mechanisms and risk assessment was presented to Dr.  Wael Naboulsi, Signatope GmbH (Germany) for his work on "A classical and an immunoaffinity-proteomic study to identify and validate drug-induced kidney injury biomarker in canine".
