Environmental Toxicology

May 20, 2013 admin
Environmental Toxicology is the study of how chemicals move within the environment and affect biological systems. The program at UC Davis is unique by studying living harmful agents as well as chemical agents.

The ETOX department at UC Davis brings together faculty who use a multitude of approaches to understand diverse toxic substances. Research combines environmental chemistry and exposure routes of toxins with the organismal, cellular, and molecular mechanisms of intoxication. Members of the department currently investigate toxins including pesticides, dioxins, metals, natural toxins and microbial pathogens.

Graduate students gain environmental toxicology expertise in a dynamic interactive atmosphere composed of graduate-level courses, seminar and research presentations, and in-depth summer classes. ETOX hosts a number of postdoctoral researchers who help make the department diverse and interactive. The interdisciplinary approach allows department members to become familiar with disciplines ranging from environmental chemistry to aquatic toxicology to forensics.
