This course covers the knowledge of toxicological evaluations for new and existing chemicals. Humans, animals, and plants are exposed to chemicals in the air, food or water. These chemicals have the potential to cause harm (hazard) when exposure exceeds certain dose or level. Ultimately, the response to any chemical depends upon duration and route of exposure, the toxicokinetics of the chemical, and the dose-response relationship.
Credit hours: 2+1
