The Bio Resource Research Program in the College of Agricultural Sciences provides research-based, interdisciplinary education, in conjunction with a rigorous biosciences curriculum and opportunities for experiential learning and professional development, in fields related to biological resources, agriculture, and environmental, food and health sciences. Our graduates can contribute successfully to their future career fields or graduate programs, and think critically to help solve the world’s bio resource-related problems. Students can choose any one of the following option: Toxicology Toxicology concerns potentially hazardous chemicals in food and the environment and their effects on biological life. Toxic chemicals include pesticides such as insecticides and herbicides, industrial waste products, compounds that exist naturally in plants, those that contaminate foods as a result of fungal growth, and even some that are produced in the preparation and cooking of foods. Potential health effects from toxin exposures can range from immediate impairment of breathing or nerve function to chronic diseases, cancer, birth defects, and immune disorders. Toxicology research focuses on understanding mechanisms of toxicity, human and environmental risks from exposure, and means for reducing risks. Students will acquire laboratory skills in applied biochemistry and molecular, cellular, and organismal biology, preparing them for research or regulatory positions or biosciences/biomedical graduate/professional programs.
