James C. Bradford Memorial Poster Award
This is an award for the best trainee poster(s) at the annual meetings of the Society for Birth Defects Research and Prevention (BDRP) and Developmental Neurotoxicology Society (DNTS). It is jointly sponsored by the Middle Atlantic Reproduction and Teratology Association (MARTA) and sanofi-aventis. Currently the award consists of a plaque and $500, although the monetary award is subject to change.
Jim Bradford was a past-President of MARTA, Sigma Xi and on Committees of the Society for Birth Defects Research and Prevention. He was Director of R&D Operations at Sanofi at the time of his death. Jim mentored several Developmental and Reproductive Toxicology (DART) scientists and was a pioneer in Industrial DART Testing. Jim was the consummate scientist, well respected and universally liked.
Currently the award is presented for the best student (undergraduate or graduate) and/or post-doctoral posters presented at the joint BDRP/DNTS meeting.
Judging is based on the poster’s subject, impact, and clarity and on the presenter’s understanding and knowledge (as evaluated by answers to questions from the judges).
