Joint Graduate Program in Toxicology

For students interested in research and scholarship in toxicology, the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy offers the opportunity to pursue either an MS or a PhD through the Joint Graduate Program in Toxicology. This interdisciplinary graduate program is a cooperative effort between Rutgers and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey–Robert Wood Johnson Medical School through their partnership in the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute (EOHSI).

In the program, students complete didactic coursework and conduct laboratory research in preparation for careers as toxicologists in academia, industry, or government. Serving as advisors are distinguished pharmacy faculty who are actively engaged in major research projects, many of which are federally funded. In fact, the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy ranks sixth among all U.S. pharmacy schools in research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). While the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology is the pharmacy school’s home department for the graduate program, faculty from other academic departments also participate.
