George H. Scott, a Procter & Gamble scientist, who gained worldwide respect for his tireless efforts and contributions in the fields of human and environmental toxicology is remembered through an annual award established by The Toxicology Forum in 1983. His unfailing support of The Forum in its early days played a major role in its success. The award is given to those who have demonstrated an outstanding role in developing and applying the science of toxicology, and honors the memory of George H. Scott. Dr. Peters with over 20 years as an academic researcher has numerous contributions to the science of toxicology, along with the selfless service, education, and mentoring that continues to advance not only the science, but the people that help increase the impact and utilization of toxicology.
