Research Interests

Toxicology mentoring and diversity inclusion training program
This project has been recently funded by the National Institutes of Health, Innovative Programs to Enhance Research Training. It aims to offer a mentoring program to underrepresented college students and recruit them into the toxicology profession. Another specific aim of this project is to develop and deliver openly available online training modules that address toxicology core competencies. Toxicology is the science of characterizing the effects of poisons or toxicants on living organisms. It is an established profession in North America, however, the number of underrepresented groups in toxicology remains disappointingly low. The Toxicology Mentoring and Diversity Inclusion Training Program is addressing this problem. This is a multi-institutional project led by University of California - Davis and involving Iowa State University, The Ohio State University, Tuskegee University, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and Michigan State University.
