Welcome

The Graduate Group in Pharmacology and Toxicology (PTX) at the University of California, Davis, is an interdisciplinary program that combines coursework and experimental training in modern approaches to pharmacological and toxicological problems. The group is comprised of more than 80 faculty members from the School of Veterinary Medicine, School of Medicine, College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, and the College of Biological Sciences. Areas of research span fundamental and translational research in a broad spectrum of areas within pharmacology and toxicology, including cardiovascular pharmacology, cancer therapeutics, neuropharmacology, drug discovery and design, neurotoxicology, pulmonary toxicology and environmental toxicology. Students complete core courses in pharmacology and toxicology and carry out research rotations during their first year of study. The program offers both M.S. and Ph.D. degrees, and all Ph.D. students receive financial support.
