Welcome to the Curriculum in Toxicology and Environmental Medicine!
Message from Dr. Jaspers
Welcome to the Curriculum in Toxicology and Environmental Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Our mission is to provide a cutting edge research and mentoring environment to train students and postdoctoral fellows in environmental health and toxicology. Our trainees are engaged in original research projects addressing important toxicological and environmental health issues, preparing them for independent careers in academia, government, or industry. Using in silico, in vitro, in vivo, as well as human translational research approaches the goal of our trainees’ research is to elucidate the pathogenesis of exposure to toxic agents.
Our interdisciplinary training program involves faculty from numerous Departments and Divisions in the School of Medicine, School of Public Health, and School of Pharmacy. In addition, the Curriculum in Toxicology and Environmental Medicine is unique in its interactions with investigators at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), who play key roles in the training of our Toxicology students and postdocs. As a consequence, the breadth of resources available through our program uniquely prepares our trainees for the next steps in their career paths.
