The Department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology is an active group of graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, faculty, and faculty research assistants whose diverse research interests include environmental fate and transport and the molecular mechanisms by which chemicals impact human and wildlife health. These research activities extend beyond the department to include collaborations with other Oregon State University departments, local and federal government agencies, and the private sector. To share our research, forge collaborations within and beyond the EMT department, and create professional networking opportunities for toxicology trainees, the department will hold an annual “EMT Research Day” targeting a broad scientific audience that showcases the work of EMT researchers and is inclusive of departments outside of EMT whose research interests crossover with the discipline of toxicology.

 

1)      Share EMT Dept. research

a.       EMT Platform presentations

  • Students, post docs and faculty

b.      Poster session

  • EMT and affiliates

o   Each EMT lab displays its collaborative networks and research expertise

 

2)      Forge Collaborations within EMT and OSU

  • Invite Biological and Ecological Engineering, College of Veterinary Medicine, Pharmacy, EHSC, etc.

 

3)      Forge Collaborations outside of EMT

a.       Select a leading researcher as a keynote speaker to draw interest from a range of potential audience members

b.      Utilize existing department contacts to Invite an audience that is science based, but not necessarily specific to toxicology, for example: USGS, EPA, CDC, NOAA, etc.

 

4)      Create professional networking opportunities for toxicology trainees

a.       Select a leading researcher as a keynote speaker to draw interest from a range of potential audience members

b.      To facilitate collaborations, utilize extra departmental sources such as vendors to provide resources (e.g.,  lunch with an expert)
