Graduate Program in Toxicology at UR
The Rochester Toxicology Program provides state-of-the-art graduate and postdoctoral training in the environmental health sciences and toxicology. Our mission is to educate and train the next generation of talented, independent toxicologists and environmental health scientists who are able to conduct innovative research and transform their research findings into information, resources, and tools that will be used by public health and medical professionals, as well as the public, to improve overall human health and well-being.
Our program is one of the oldest and strongest research-oriented toxicology programs in the nation. We are ranked among the top 5 toxicology graduate programs in the USA, according to the National Academy of Science’s NRC Assessment of Graduate Education, 2010.
This program is housed within the Department of Environmental Medicine, but our focus is multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary. As such, faculty mentors come from over 10 different basic science and clinical departments. For more information please visit the Rochester Toxicology Program.
