IUTOX merit award 2010 till Torbjörn Malmfors
På IUTOX/ EUROTOX kongress i Barcelona (19-23 July, 2010) tilldelades Torbjörn Malmfors IUTOX merit award för många års utmärkta insatser och förtjänstfulla bidrag till IUTOX och den internationella toxikologiska vetenskapen.
Torbjörn är den femte vinnaren efter Seymour Friess (1998), José Castro (2001), Iain Purchase (2004) och Tetsuo Satoh (2007).
Motiveringen till utmärkelsen lyder som följer:
“Torbjörn Malmfors is the recipient of the 2010 IUTOX Merit Award in recognition of his significant international contributions to the field of toxicology.
An expert in risk assessment, he has shared his knowledge and provided tremendous leadership through his teaching, writing and research in many parts of the world. Of special note is his years long leadership of RASS where he expertly led the effort to train and mentor several hundred toxicologists in the practice of risk assessment.
Dr. Malmfors served as an Executive Councilor of IUTOX for six years and as Treasurer for three years. He led the Swedish Society of Toxicology as President and served as Secretary General of the Federation of European Societies of Toxicology.
In his own words taken from the History of IUTOX he authored in 2007, Torbjörn talked about IUTOX as something with which he’d been involved for a very long time and which is close to his heart. IUTOX returns that affection to Torbjörn with gratitude for his years of dedication and service to toxicologists around the world. It is with great pleasure that IUTOX presents its 2010 Merit Award to Torbjörn Malmfors.”
SFTs styrelse vill härmed varmt gratulera Torbjörn till den fina utmärkelsen!
