The Norwegian Society of Pharmacology and Toxicology (NSFT) has awarded the Poulsson award 2018 to Prof Juliette Legler from the Institute for Risk Assessment Sciences at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands. I really like to congratulate Juliette with this achievement!

The Poulsson price is awarded every year by the society to either pharmacologists or toxicologists. The toxicology section can nominate every three year a renowned toxicologist to receive this award. Three years ago  Dr. Jan Alexander received this award.

The award ceremony is on the 10th of October in the Auditorium at STAMI. The ceremony starts at 1300h and everyone is welcome to attend. Juliette will deliver a lecture with as title: Unravelling the role of environmental chemicals in disease with toxicology and epidemiology.

In addition, Norwegian researchers that have worked closely with Juliette will present their work. Merete Eggesbø, Erik Ropstad, Jan Ludvig Lyche and Jorke Kamstra will present their work. You are all welcome to attend this interesting seminar!
