Both human and environmental toxicology applications will be studied.

Research Trends in Toxicology

Topics covered include:

  • How the principles of toxicology are being applied to cutting-edge research questions in human and environmental toxicology
  • Novel tools available for toxicological research and how these are leading to discovery of new effects and modes-of-toxic-action
  •  Toxicity testing in the 21st century, toxicogenomics, ecotoxicology, genetic toxicology, endocrine disruption, reproductive or developmental toxicology, dealing with chemical mixtures, and topical issues such as emerging contaminants and microplastics
