ESOH 425 Toxicology and Risk Assessment

This capstone course emphasizes toxicology from the whole body perspective and covers principles and mechanisms of toxicology, absorption, distribution, and excretion of toxicants, carcinogenesis, pesticides, metals, and other workplace and environmental toxicants. The course applies the principles of toxicity and exposure assessment to characterize risk. The student will apply these principles to toxicants and exposure routes at a site selected with the instructor's approval. Class discussions and risk calculations will cover toxicological exposure assessments for air, water, soil, and food. Risk-based environmental decisions methods are introduced.
