The Toxicology Mentoring and Skills Development Training Program (ToxMSDT), housed at the University of California Davis, is a special opportunity for underrepresented undergraduate 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. Activities include the program kickoff workshop hosted by the University of California Davis, a visit to the mentor’s work site, in-person attendance at the annual Society of Toxicology meeting, and a capstone celebration of the program's successes hosted by Tuskegee University. Online learning modules are provided throughout the duration of the program to increase the mentee's knowledge about toxicology. Travel cost support for programmatic activities will be provided by ToxMSDT. This program supplements the regular academic pursuits of students. The start date is August 16, 2024, with the end date of May 31, 2025

Applications are open from January 8, 2024, until April 26, 2024. Access the application portal here: ToxMSDT- Appy Here
