ESTIV Early Career Award granted to Dr. Timothy Allen

Dr. Timothy Allen

The first ESTIV Early Career Award has been granted to Timothy Allen. He obtained a master’s degree in natural sciences in 2012, a doctoral degree in chemistry in 2016 and currently is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. His recent and current work focuses on the computational modelling of molecular initiating events in adverse outcome pathways as well as on the use of artificial intelligence in chemical safety evaluation. Timothy has built up an impressive track record over the past few years, including several publications in leading toxicology journals, invited lectures in international conferences and a number of prestigious research awards. He has been selected by the ESTIV board as the recipient of the Early Career Award in recognition of his outstanding and significant contribution to the field of animal-free toxicology.
