Program Receives NIEHS Training Grant

The Environmental Toxicology Graduate Program at UCR was recently selected for an NIEHS T32 training grant to support the education and training of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Posted below is the description published in InsideUCR. Our thanks to ETOX Director Yinsheng Wang who was the force behind the application and will be overseeing the award.

Program Gets $1 Million Grant
The Environmental Toxicology Program has received a prestigious “institutional training grant” of nearly $1.1 million from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

Yinsheng Wang, a professor of chemistry, is the principal investigator of the five-year grant; David Eastmond, the chair of the Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience, is the grant’s co-principal investigator.

The grant will enable the training of graduate students and postdoctoral researchers working in the area of environmental toxicology.

“The training grant will provide additional support to the environmental toxicology and related graduate programs,” Wang said. “This will also enhance the visibility and reputation of our graduate program.”
