Center for Molecular and Cellular Toxicology
Research Unit Profile
The University of Texas at Austin has established an interdisciplinary Center for Cellular and Molecular Toxicology (CMCT). The mission of the CMCT is to provide leadership for the expansion of programs of excellence in environmental health sciences education and research. The CMCT is supported by the College of Pharmacy and also involves faculty in the College of Natural Sciences and the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Department of Carcinogenesis, located at the Science Park -Research Division, in Smithville, about 40 miles east of Austin.
