The ASCCT offered three awards to presenters in 2021. Two of these were awarded $500 cash prizes based on excellent poster or oral presentations.

The Ed Carney Predictive Toxicology Award recognizes the first author of an outstanding poster or platform presentation that will advance predictive toxicology, and is named after Dr. Ed Carney, a member and supporter of the ASCCT and a leader in the predictive toxicology field. The 2021 winner was Dr. Kelly Carstens, US EPA ORISE, for her presentation Analyzing multi-dimensional developmental neurotoxicity new approach methodologies: Computational approaches to identify phenotypes.

The Ray Tice Tox21 Student Award is presented to recognize the best student presentation during the meeting and was established with a generous donation from Dr. Ray Tice, a leader in implementing and setting the stage for Toxicity Testing in the 21st Century. The 2021 winner was Anouck Thienpont, Vrije Universiteit Brussel for her presentation Development of a novel genotoxicity prediction model based on biomarker genes in human HepaRGTM cells. 

Finally, Applied In Vitro Toxicology offered a $300 award and 1-year subscription to one early career scientist focusing on applied work that stands to make a lasting impact on NAMs implementation. The winner of this award was Dr. Agnes Karmaus, Integrated Laboratory Systems, Inc. for her presentation Annotating and Visualizing In Vitro Data to Gain Context.
