University of California Davis

The Toxicology Mentoring and Skills Development Training Program (ToxMSDT), housed at the University of California Davis, is a special opportunity for underrepresented undergraduate science students to participate in a year-long mostly remote toxicology training and mentoring program. Funded by the National Institute of Health, the goal of this program is to attract diverse undergraduate students from around the United States to pursue careers in biomedical research, especially in the field of toxicology. Successful applicants will be teamed with a mentor meeting remotely throughout the year. In-person activities include the program kickoff workshop at the University of California Davis, a visit to the mentor’s work site, attendance at the annual Society of Toxicology meeting, and a celebration of the program successes at the Capstone Event at Tuskegee University. Online learning modules are provided throughout the duration of the program to increase mentees‘ knowledge about toxicology. Travel cost support for programmatic activities will be provided by ToxMSDT. This program supplements the regular academic pursuits of the ToxMSDT students. The program starts September 1, 2022, with the end date of May 31, 2023.
