The Work Shadow Program, hosted in collaboration with the OSU Superfund Research Center, will function to introduce young scientists to a range of toxicological careers including biotechnology, consulting, public health, environmental protection, forensic, and regulatory toxicology and academic research. Based on interest, participants will be matched and spend a portion of the day shadowing regional toxicologists on the job.
