The Interdisciplinary Toxicology Program at the University of Georgia is comprised of graduate students, faculty, staff scientists, and post-doctoral fellows from several departments within the University. The program is committed to a high quality graduate education and excellence in research, and both faculty and graduate students have received national recognition for their endeavors. Our goal is to provide strong interdisciplinary graduate training, research and service programs in toxicology. This is accomplished by encouraging cooperation and sharing of resources and faculty in different colleges, such as Agricultural and Environmental sciences, Ecology, Pharmacy, Public Health, and Veterinary Medicine. A coordinating committee from among these colleges directs the program.
