The University of California, Davis, Department
of Environmental Toxicology has formed a group called "Friends of Environmental Toxicology" with the purpose of fostering friendship between our department and people of California who are interested in environmental protection and associated sciences.
Our department is the first academic unit in the U.S. to dedicate its efforts solely to the study of Environmental Toxicology and to the education and training of young scholars in this field. We annually attract approximately 120 undergraduate majors and 30 graduate students. Over 700 students a year take our courses offered at UC Davis. Our faculty members participate in environmental studies on Lake Tahoe, the Sierra Nevada (disappearing frogs), Central Valley ecosystems, the San Francisco Bay, estuaries and forest ecosystems. More medically oriented faculty members study environmental causes of respiratory problems, breast cancer, diabetes, skin diseases, neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, and reproductive and developmental problems.
