Terrence Monks, PhD

Assistance Vice President for Integrative Biosciences, Wayne State University


Terrence J. Monks, Ph.D. received his doctorate in biochemical pharmacology (drug metabolism) from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School, University of London. He completed post-doctoral studies in the Laboratory of Chemical Pharmacology at the National Institutes of Health and in 1989 joined the University of Texas at Austin, where he moved through the academic ranks and became the founding director of the Center for Molecular and Cellular Toxicology.

In 2003, Dr. Monks relocated to the University of Arizona, Tucson, where he served as chair of the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, and Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Affairs. He is currently the Assistant Vice President for Integrative Biosciences at Wayne State University and professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences.

Dr. Monks served as chairman of the Gordon Research Conference on Drug Metabolism. He was elected to the Council of the American Society for Pharmacology & Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET, 2006-09); elected president of the Mechanisms Specialty Section of SOT (2002-03), and has served in numerous other capacities in a variety of professional organizations. Dr. Monks has also served on numerous NIH review committees, and organized and chaired symposia at several national and international meetings, including those of FASEB, ASPET, ACS and SOT. His current research focuses on the nature of the chemical- and ROS-induced stress response, and in particular on the molecular mechanisms determining the balance between cell survival and cell death.
