Program Tracks

Graduates of our Track in Molecular and Mechanistic Toxicology are prepared to conduct research in molecular mechanisms of cellular, tissue and organism-level responses to environmental and industrial chemicals, drugs and radiation; oxygen free radicals and associated diseases including cancer; and chemoprevention through cellular repair and response mechanisms. An understanding of the role of environment/gene interactions in chemical exposure related diseases is a common goal of our program.

Graduates of our Track in Toxicology and Environmental Health are prepared to conduct basic and public health research, teach, and provide technical support to federal, state, and local governments, industry, and public interest groups in areas including the evaluation and testing of harmful effects of chemical, physical, and biological agents on living organisms; prevention of chemical induced diseases; chemical risk assessment; and environmental protection through governmental regulations for the control and monitoring of hazardous chemicals.
