Research and postgraduate teaching in toxicology is coordinated and led by the Toxicology Centre, with substantial participation from members of the University's Toxicology Group. The Toxicology Group is an interdisciplinary body under the umbrella of the College of Graduate Studies and Research that consists of faculty members from many university departments, as well as scientists from various government research institutions located on or near campus. Most Toxicology Group faculty are available to serve as supervisors for prospective students. The interdisciplinary nature of the program provides students with a diverse array of potential research opportunities in toxicology. Prospective students can apply to the program from such varied undergraduate backgrounds as agriculture, biology, chemistry, ecology, environmental sciences, medicine, physiology, pharmacology, toxicology, and veterinary medicine, to name but a few.
