Travel Award 2018
This year we enjoyed a large number of meritorious applications for our annual Toxics Travel Awards. With the assistance of our Editorial Board Members, I believe we have identified the outstanding candidate. As Editor-in-Chief of Toxics, I am pleased to announce the winner of the Toxics Travel Awards for 2018:
Travel Award was granted to Dr. Joaquim Rovira, a post-doctoral researcher in Dr. Marta Schuhmacher’s lab at Rovira i Virgili University, Spain.
Dr. Joaquim Rovira’s research focuses on the environmental monitoring and human health risk assessment. He is involved in several research projects one of them regarding prenatal exposure to endocrine disruptors in a cohort of pregnant women in the reference hospital in their region.
Congratulations to Dr. Rovira and thanks to all who applied.

As Editor-in-Chief of Toxics, I am pleased to announce the winner of the Toxics Travel Awards for 2017: the Travel Award was granted to Dr. Pallavi Pant, a post-doctoral researcher in Dr. Richard Peltier’s lab at University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
Dr. Pallavi Pant conducts research on urban environmental exposures and health effects with a focus on particulate matter exposure characterization, particularly in developing countries. Her long-term goal is to improve the understanding of air pollution characteristics, sources and levels of exposure in developing countries and contribute towards mainstreaming environmental health into urban policymaking and programs.
