Dr. Alan Stokes is the Senior Director of Toxicology at Glaxo Smith Kline. Earlier in his training, Dr. Stokes completed his postdoctoral training in the JGPT. In October 2024, he returned to the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute where he shared his journey with current toxicology students and postdocs. During this Lunch and Learn, Dr. Stokes covered a broad array of topics. These included new technologies in the development of pharmaceuticals, board certification as a toxicologist, different types of companies for toxicologist to work in, and more. This exciting and dynamic session will certainly lead to more networking between Dr. Stokes and the Rutgers toxicology trainees.
