Welcome to ETOX, the Environmental Toxicology Graduate Program at UCR

Mission & Vision

The Environmental Toxicology Graduate Program offers an integrated interdisciplinary course of study leading to the M.S. or Ph.D. degree. The program is designed to teach students the scientific principles of toxicology and it focuses primarily upon the biology, chemistry, and mechanisms by which xenobiotics and natural toxins interact with the biosphere, including humans. Studies on mechanisms of toxicity complement research directed towards understanding the movement of toxics through soil, water, and air and for the development of procedures to reduce pollution and clean up contaminated sites.
