The ToxMSDT program is funded by the National Institutes of Health; has six institutional partners, including SOT; and is housed at University of California Davis under Principal Investigator (PI) Wilson Rumbeiha, a long-time SOT member, while Jodi Flaws, another long-time SOT member at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, serves as the Co-PI. Through this program, 25 undergraduates are selected annually and subsequently matched with a mentor. By working with the mentor and participating in ToxMSDT activities, the students experience professional development growth and gain a deeper knowledge of toxicology and careers in the discipline. The program’s overall goal is to increase diversity in the biomedical research workforce. The online modules are included in the ToxMSDT curriculum but also are available to learners worldwide for independent use or in formal or informal education.
