BIOS 5600 - Toxicology

Through a lecture/discussion format, the means by which toxicants exert their effects on mammalian, aquatic and ecological systems will be explored. Topics will include bioaccumulation, distribution and excretion of chemicals in the body, the role of metabolism in enhancing or reducing toxicity, mechanisms of toxicity and the effects of toxicants on the major organ systems. Chemodynamic processes which control exposure of organisms will be presented in the context of risk assessment, and the problems inherent in predicting and quantifying risks will be discussed. This course is cross-listed with CHEM 5580.

Prerequisites & Corequisites: Prerequisites: BIOS 3500; CHEM 3550 & 3560 recommended.
