Maronpot Guest Lecture

This award recognizes Dr. Robert Maronpot for his significant contributions to the field of toxicologic pathology and the advancement of the IATP. This lecture award is sponsored through an educational grant provided by The Telikicherla Higher Education Foundation.  

The IATP is now accepting proposals from well-established and active toxicologic pathology or toxicology societies for the IATP Maronpot Guest Lecture.  Societies may apply to have this lecture held during their annual meeting by sending a proposal to IATP.

Two lectures will be awarded each calendar year. The deadlines for proposals to be received are January 1 and July 1. Ideally, proposals should include the following information, if possible:

1.       Date and location of the lecture

2.       Title of lecture (the Society can choose a topic that is appropriate for their membership)

3.       Lecture abstract

5.       Budget Request. Please provide the amount of funds being requested and how the funds will be used.

Important Sponsorship Recognition Requirement: The IATP and THE Foundation must be acknowledged appropriately for the support of this lecture in all meeting advertising and materials.  The host society will be responsible for advertising the lecture in their meeting materials, processing all registrations, providing any on-site staff/management as needed at the session, and ensuring the appropriate recognition is given to IATP and THE Foundation in all meeting materials.  

The society may not charge a separate registration fee for this lecture.  If your lecture proposal is approved, IATP will issue payment in the form of an educational grant to the host society.  The host society will be responsible for utilizing this funding to cover speaker transportation and/or lodging.

Selection of Grant Recipient:  All proposals will be reviewed by the IATP Education Committee for recommending the grant recipient to the Board of Directors.  The Board of Directors will make the final selection.  Two lectures will be chosen per calendar year.
