PHD Programs

UCLA Molecular Toxicology Graduate Program

The thirty-four faculty of our interdepartmental PhD in Molecular Toxicology Program come from seventeen different departments in the School of Medicine, the Fielding School of Public Health, and the College of Letters and Science at UCLA. Members of our faculty also participate in the activities of the UCLA Health Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the California Nanosystems Institute. Areas of particular strength in our program include chemical carcinogenesis, repair of DNA damage, air pollution toxicology, nanotoxicology, and the environmental causation of Parkinson's disease. The program is supported by a training grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). Our program is now in its twenty-third year.
