By Catherine Sprankle

Sidney Green, Adjunct Associate Professor of pharmacology at Howard University, will receive the 2020 SOT Founders Award for outstanding leadership in toxicology. Green’s career in toxicology and pharmacology has spanned over 50 years, during which time he worked at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and Covance before joining Howard University in 1998. While at FDA, where he served as Director of the Division of Toxicological Research, his efforts as the Agency’s chief spokesperson in the area of alternative tests contributed to the establishment of the Interagency Regulatory Alternatives Group, a predecessor of ICCVAM. Green has also served on ICCVAM’s advisory committee, the Scientific Advisory Committee on Alternative Toxicological Methods (SACATM).
