About Our Program

The Interdisciplinary Faculty of Toxicology (IFT) is a graduate studies program that is composed of faculty from across multiple colleges, departments, and laboratories at the university. Since 1989, over 50 MS students, nearly 200 PhD students, and two DVM/PhD students have earned a Texas A&M Toxicology degree. In addition, well over 100 post doctoral students have trained in our program.

Trainees In Action

Training the future generation of toxicologists in novel scientific discoveries should go hand-in-hand with ensuring that trainees develop a broad set of complementary competencies that span multiple disciplines from basic biology to exposure science, biostatistics, and epidemiology. Trainees must also understand how these data and knowledge are translated into decisions and policy.
