Welcome to the Graduate Program in the Molecular and Environmental Toxicology Center (METC) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Since 1970, a group of dedicated faculty sought to generate an interdisciplinary training program in environmental toxicology with emphasis on hazardous synthetic chemicals in our environment. Currently, toxicology research topics in the program include molecular topics such as chemical carcinogenesis, cell signaling, and chemical detoxification and environmental topics such as ecotoxicology of pollutants, insecticide resistance, and pollutant uptake in plants. Our diverse community of high-caliber students, faculty members, and facilities allow for this interdisciplinary research to be successfully conducted. Read more about METC.
