According to the Society of Toxicology, toxicology is ‘the study of the adverse effects of chemical, physical, or biological agents on people, animals, and the environment. Toxicologists are scientists trained to investigate, interpret, and communicate the nature of those effects'. Toxicology is a blended discipline; utilizing aspects of biology, biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology and chemistry. The goals of this webinar are to 1) detail some of the analytical techniques commonly employed in toxicological analyses and provide context for their importance, 2) provide a basic understanding of the science of toxicology using case studies and, 3) acquaint attendees with methods associated with data validation, quality control and risk assessment. Participants will understand the use and importance of analytical chemistry when identifying human and environmental toxicants. More importantly, they will see the vital role analytical chemistry plays in toxicology and public health.

Key learning objectives

  • Discuss major concepts in Toxicology
  • Acquire fundamental information about the variety of analytical techniques used for toxicology
  • Recognize the range of applications for analytical techniques within the field of toxicology
  • Gain confidence in communicating the basics of Toxicology

Who should attend?

  • Students and professionals working in toxicology who want to know more about analytical techniques.
  • Analytical professionals who want to know more about toxicology.
  • Graduate and PhD students in analytical sciences who want to gain insight into toxicology essentials.
