Craig Marcus, PhD
The Environmental Health Sciences Center supports faculty members with strong interests in environmental hgealth science reserarch and outreach. The Career Development Core helps faculty develop strong programs and build effective networks to become leaders in the environmental health field. The core will enable and energize new faculty to coalesce into teams that will develop novel approaches to address the strategic goals of NIEHS.
The Core has a network of Center members and other experts across the OSU campus to serve as mentors and potential collaborators. Our professional networks also include other Environmental Health Sciences Centers and NIEHS funded groups.
Research efforts of new investigators can be supported by the Career Development Core. There are also pilot project opportunities.

Graduate and Postdoctoral Training Program Overview
EHSC faculty, staff, and core units assist in the recruitment and training of promising individuals to levels in toxicology and environmental health that can effectively meet the growing global challenge.
The Training Programs, with their hands-on interdisciplinary research opportunities and complementary academics, are integral to providing vital graduate and postdoctoral training at OSU.
Former graduates hold professional positions in government, academia, and industry.
Oregon State University (OSU) offers interdisciplinary training in toxicology through its predoctoral degree program in the Department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology and through postdoctoral fellowships. The NIEHS Training Grant offers financial support and provides unique research opportunities to selected predoctoral candidates and postdoctoral fellows. Support is available on a competitive basis to applicants with a B.S., M.S., or Ph.D. in chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology, toxicology, or the biological sciences.
Affiliated faculty members provide challenging basic sciences academics while mentoring students as they develop individual projects; this intensive course of studies leads to the M.S. or Ph.D. degree in toxicology. Training is provided in diverse areas including analytical, aquatic, biochemical, comparative, environmental and molecular toxicology with an emphasis on a mechanistic approach. Research projects focus on some aspect of toxicology or environmental health.
