A decade after developing the country’s first undergraduate degree in cosmetic science and formulation design, led by Gabriella Baki, Ph.D., Pharm.D., UToledo is leveraging its expertise to launch a new, online master’s degree in cosmetic science and formulation design. With state-of-the-art labs and highly qualified faculty, UToledo now has the most comprehensive cosmetic science and formulation design program in the nation.

A new Health Sciences undergraduate program, co-directed by Sarah Long, Ph.D., reimagines how students are prepared for careers in a slate of healthcare professions such as medicine, physical therapy and athletic training by pairing specialized training with contemporary perspectives on healthcare delivery, including foundational education on social determinants of health and interprofessional care.

Though the U.S. set a record in 2022 with more than 42,000 organ transplants, a new name is added to the transplant wait list every 10 minutes. The Transplantation and Donation Sciences master’s program prepares students to oversee those life-saving procedures from beginning to end. UToledo’s academic program is the only one in the country specifically focused on training organ procurement coordinators.

To meet a growing need for qualified radiation therapists in Ohio and throughout the country, UToledo developed a new bachelor of science in radiation therapy. The program, organized by David Pearson, Ph.D., an associate professor of radiation oncology, prepares students to be part of a multidisciplinary cancer care team and is the first undergraduate degree offered exclusively through the College of Medicine and Life Sciences.

The brain is one of the final frontiers of medicine with unanswered questions like how memories are stored and retrieved, and what causes common but complicated brain disorders. UToledo is developing the next generation of brain researchers with a new, cross-disciplinary neuroscience bachelor’s degree that bridges medicine and biology.

As marijuana continues to gain legal approval for both medicinal and recreational use, UToledo’s cannabis management certificate programs provide students a holistic understanding of the plant, its properties and the legally complicated market surrounding it. Taught by pharmacy and business faculty, including senior lecturer Brandon Cohen, Ph.D., the courses dive into cannabis’s therapeutic potential and the expanding opportunities for entrepreneurship.
