Environmental Toxicology is the study of how chemicals move within the environment and affect biological systems. Our program at UC Davis is unique in that we study 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. Our 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 lead, copper, dioxin, mercury, and other 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. We host several postdoctoral researchers, who help make our department diverse and interactive. Our interdisciplinary approach allows department members to become familiar with disciplines ranging from environmental chemistry to aquatic toxicology to forensics.
