Faculty and researchers in the Department of Microbiology and Environmental Toxicology at U.C. Santa Cruz seek to understand how harmful agents—including pathogens and chemicals—interact with the environment and damage humans and animals. The department has two main research foci: microbiology and environmental health and toxicology. These studies are by nature multidisciplinary and members of the METX department are passionate contributors to multidisciplinary efforts that cross departmental boundaries.
