ToxStrategies scientist Dr. Kristina Ulrich, who practices in the United Kingdom, has been invited to serve on the selection panel for the UK Register of Toxicologists (UKRT), reviewing applicants for recognition as Registered Toxicologists. Established in 1993, the UKRT is sponsored by the Royal Society of Biology and the British Toxicology Society (BTS). Successful applicants are designated as UK Registered Toxicologists and are entitled to use the post-nominal “ERT” (EUROTOX Registered Toxicologist). Dr. Ulrich will initially serve a 4-year term on the selection panel, which consists of eight members representing a range of toxicological disciplines across academia, government, and the private sector. The panel meets three times each year, with two members reviewing each application.
Dr. Ulrich has held the UKRT+ERT designation since 2012. She currently serves on the BTS Education, Training and Career Development subcommittee, and her passion for toxicology career development in the UK has led her to play an active mentor role in the Society. Regarding her selection to the UKRT selection panel, she looks forward to “supporting the general activities of the UK network of toxicologists, as well as having an impact on the next generation of toxicologists joining the Register.”
