The collaborative specialization is the focal point for graduate teaching and research in toxicology. Students wishing to undertake graduate studies at the masters or doctoral level with emphasis on toxicology will be admitted by a participating department and will register in both the participating program and in the collaborative specialization. The participating programs include Animal Biosciences, Biomedical Sciences, Chemistry, Food Safety and Quality Assurance, Human Health and Nutritional Sciences, Integrative Biology, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Pathobiology, Plant Agriculture and Environmental Sciences.

Master's and doctoral students in the collaborative specialization in toxicology must meet the admission requirements of the participating program in which they are enrolled.
Master's Program Requirements
Master's students in the collaborative specialization in toxicology must complete a minimum of 1.50 graduate credits, which must include the toxicology courses TOX*6000 Advanced Principles of Toxicology and TOX*6200 Advanced Topics in Toxicology and courses required by the participating program in which they are enrolled. It is expected that students’ research (MRP or Thesis) or at least 30% of the courses in a course-based program be in the area of toxicology.
Doctoral Program Requirements
Doctoral students in the collaborative specialization in toxicology must meet all the academic requirements specified by the participating program in which they are enrolled. They must also complete the courses TOX*6000 Advanced Principles of Toxicology and TOX*6200 Advanced Topics in Toxicology if they, or equivalent courses, were not taken as part of a master's program. It is expected that the students' doctoral research be in the area of toxicology.
An intensive course in the principles of modern aspects of toxicology, taught in a lecture/case study format.
Advanced topics in toxicology will include oral presentations by students, faculty members, and guest lecturers. The emphasis will be on advanced concepts and techniques in toxicology research with particular relevance to mechanistic, molecular and interpretive toxicology. Offered in conjunction with TOX*4200. Extra work is required of graduate students.
The molecular mechanisms of action of carcinogens and other toxic compounds. Enzymes of biotransformation, including a detailed study of cytochrome P-450. Interactions of reactive species with DNA and other macromolecules. Offered in conjunction with TOX*4590. Extra work is required of graduate students.
