Kay Padgett Scholarship: Support OTIS Members in Attending Educational Meetings
Kay Padgett was the administrator of the Reproductive Toxicology Center when it was first conceived in the early 1980s. She was instrumental in getting REPROTOX off the ground and in keeping it running. She was a librarian by training and established search algorithms for REPROTOX that were subsequently adopted by the National Library of Medicine. It was typical of Kay to keep working even after being challenged by the disease that ultimately took her life. When it was clear to her that she would not survive, she helped us design automated systems. Because Kay was so devoted to the teratology information community, we could think of no better memorial than a scholarship to assist OTIS members in attending educational meetings.
Susan Briggs Scholarship: Bring OTIS Members to Research Meetings
The Susan Briggs Memorial Scholarship Fund is dedicated to the memory of Susan Briggs who passed away on June 28, 2009. Her husband, Jerry, was the Chair of the OTIS Research Committee for many years. According to Jerry, Susan always supported and encouraged his involvement in OTIS. Following her death, the Susan Briggs Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by the OTIS Board of Directors to encourage OTIS members who are not already Research Coordinators to attend the OTIS Midyear Research Meeting to learn more about OTIS research activities.
