During the Society of Toxicology (SOT) annual meeting in Salt Lake City, March 7-11, NIEHS grantee Gary Miller, Ph.D., received the group's 2010 Achievement Award for his significant early career contributions to toxicology.

Miller(http://www.biomed.emory.edu/FacSearch/fac_profile.cfm?CFID=5401970&CFTOKEN=27311940&faculty_id=1169) Exit NIEHS is a professor in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health and associate dean for research in the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University. He serves as the principal investigator on NIEHS grants for the Emory Parkinson's Disease Collaborative Environmental Research Center(http://tools.niehs.nih.gov/portfolio/sc/detail.cfm?appl_id=7687587), Graduate and Postdoctoral Training in Toxicology(http://tools.niehs.nih.gov/portfolio/sc/detail.cfm?appl_id=7630721), and Neurotoxicity of Nanomaterials: Evaluation of Subcellular Redox State(http://tools.niehs.nih.gov/portfolio/sc/detail.cfm?appl_id=7673814).

SOT praised Miller for his "top-notch toxicological research in the field of neuroscience" with his investigations into the environmental and genetic factors involved in neurological disease - particularly the role of pesticides in the development of Parkinson's disease (see story(http://www.niehs.nih.gov/news/newsletter/2009/august/science-mouse.cfm)). Miller and colleagues presented an overview of their research program in October 2009 at the first annual meeting of the NIEHS Centers for Neurodegeneration Science (see story(http://www.niehs.nih.gov/news/newsletter/2009/november/spotlight-neurodegen.cfm)).

Overseeing Miller's grants in the NIEHS Cellular, Organ, and Systems Pathobiology Branch are Health Science Administrators Cindy Lawler, Ph.D., Sri Nadadur, Ph.D., and Carol Shreffler, Ph.D.
