Fellows trained in our Division are prepared to conduct research in molecular mechanisms of cellular and organism responses to environmental toxicants, hormones, and industrial chemicals. They learn to appreciate and explore the role of environment-gene interactions in responses of developing and adult organisms to toxicants. Training offered in our Division is also highly translational as research in the various laboratories naturally flows from the identification of a novel molecular target for a specific toxicant into a clinically useful therapeutic intervention.

Pre- and post-doctoral fellowships receive financial support from mentor grants or from an NIH-funded training grant (T32 ES07263). Pre-doctoral fellows may also receive financial support from University of Maryland, Baltimore sources. Support from the NIH-funded training grant is available to U.S. citizens or permanent residents. The University of Maryland Baltimore is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.

Fellows trained by faculty within the Division are successfully conducting independent, basic and public health research in academic institutions and industries within and outside the US, or working in regulatory federal agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency.
