About

The Toxicology program of Rutgers University is an interdepartmental program designed to train students and postdoctoral fellows in the discipline of toxicology.

Overview

About the Program

The Toxicology program of Rutgers University was established in 1980 and is administratively housed at the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute (EOHSI) on the Busch Campus of Rutgers University in Piscataway, NJ. The JGPT curriculum provides broad research training in biochemical, organ system, and mechanistic toxicology with a strong foundation in drug metabolism, pathology, and molecular biology. The Program is administered by the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, but draws on mentors come from over 17 different departments on campus to provide multidisciplinary training. Trainees are mentored by over 50 faculty members and academic and industry partners. A NIEHS T32 Training Grant in Environmental Toxicology (T32ES007148) has been the cornerstone of the JGPT for 30 years and supports the tuition and stipends of doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows.
