Even before graduation, Douglas M. Frederick was taking advantage of his education at the University and reaping the
benefits. He is currently employed as a toxicologist in the Global
Regulatory and Safety Department at the Revlon Research Center in
Edison, New Jersey.
Dr. Frederick’s doctoral degree was vital in obtaining the position at Revlon.
“It proved that I was capable of doing the specialized work the company was looking to perform,” said Dr. Frederick.
Dr. Frederick found many opportunities for development at the University.
His experience as a graduate instructor in undergraduate pharm-tox courses allowed him to both educate and learn from students.
He also developed his abilities and knowledge through guidance from his advisor, Dr. Peter J. Harvison, pharmaceutical sciences professor.
“This is a professional
relationship I plan to maintain for the rest of my career,” said Dr.
Frederick. “[At USciences] you have supportive network of classmates,
faculty, and staff that wants you to succeed.”
