About

Toxicology is an applied science which has inputs from many scientific disciplines e.g. molecular biology, chemistry, anatomy, physiology, and epidemiology. The programme in general toxicology provides its students with the basic scientific knowledge and professional skills to carry out a human chemical risk assessment. There is a great demand for toxicologists because so many chemicals and products of the biotechnology industry are awaiting risk assessments. The programme also provides a solid background for any student wishing to pursue Ph.D. studies in toxicology and related sciences.

Studies

There is a clear shortage of toxicologists capable of making chemical risk assessments in humans, and our program aims to partly answer this need. The program has been planned to allow its graduates to become competent human chemical risk assessors. The program clarifies the EU directives which are the basis for toxicological risk assessment as well as acknowledging the recent attempts at global harmonization of the categorization of all chemicals (new chemicals, medicines, cosmetics)....
