Welcome to the CMCT web page. Here you will find a description of our inter-disciplinary graduate programs and information on participating CMCT faculty and their specific research programs. This information should assist you in determining whether our program is compatible with your career goals.

Our toxicology faculty welcome direct inquiries from prospective graduate students. Because the CMCT was established "To provide leadership for the expansion of programs of excellence in environmental health sciences research and education" resources available through the Center are utilized to enhance all aspects of the graduate student experience, including student fellowships, travel to scientific meetings, and a world class seminar program.

Students conduct research within a strong interdisciplinary environment, and their research is consistently recognized at national meetings with prestigious and competitive awards. Graduates from our program have gone on to work with members of the U.S. National Academy of Science, complete Post-Doctoral Fellowships at top US and international laboratories including the world renowned Karolinska Institute in Stockholm or at the MRC's Center for Human Toxicology in the UK. Ultimately, our graduates develop successful careers in academia, industry, government, and consulting.

We view success in terms of the career satisfaction achieved by our graduates. Be assured that the faculty of the CMCT will work hard to assist you in your career aspirations.
