Systems Toxicology (syTOX) is an integrated graduate training program that crosses several departments and colleges at WVU, as well as the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Preceptors and trainees are drawn from the seven graduate programs in Biomedical Sciences, Engineering, Psychology, Public Health, and Health Outcomes (Pharmaceutical Systems & Policy) PhD Programs. The syTOX Program provides graduate students with strong training at the interface of the major physiologic systems and toxicology, with a programmatic focus around diverse inhalation exposures and the associated science/technology. are also proposed.
Students currently enrolled in PhD programs in the Biomedical Sciences, Engineering, Psychology, Public Health, Health Outcomes (Pharmaceutical Systems & Policy and Clinical and Translational Science may apply to the syTOX program. Application can occur as early as the end of the first year of graduate school.
