Experts try to promote human, animal, and environmental health by reacting to problems as they are discovered and by preventing problems before they occur.

The Interdisciplinary Toxicology Program is designed to meet these needs in teaching and in research. Research is being conducted in many fields of toxicology in this program.

Some examples of research currently being conducted include:

  • Biomarkers of Toxicity
  • Aquatic Toxicology
  • Genotoxicity
  • Developmental and Reproductive Toxicology
  • Neurotoxicology
  • Carcinogenesis
  • Mechanisms of Toxicity
  • Immunotoxicology
  • Alternative Models for Toxicity Testing, i.e. Stem Cells and In-vitro
  • Naturally Occuring Toxins
  • Nephrotoxicology
  • Physiologically-based Pharmacokinetic Models
  • Ecotoxicology
  • Metabolic Toxicology
