Fall Course Update 8/13

Posted: August 13, 2014

New Course! Global Health Studies (GHS) 490, Applied Toxicology, will meet MW 11-12:15. Instructor: S. Adkins.

Course description: A study of the current challenges facing the field of toxicology. Toxicology relies on understanding how the dose of a chemical can impact the response in living organisms. Using the primary literature in toxicological case studies, students examine novel health outcomes, such as reproductive, developmental, neurological, and immunological endpoints. In addition, students learn about atypical doses at which some chemicals may operate, critical windows of developmental exposure, and the fetal origins of some adult diseases. Our study stresses the complexity of real-world exposures, such as antagonistic or synergistic effects from exposure to multiple contaminants and the variability in individual susceptibility. Prerequisites: Junior/senior standing, and at least one Biology course numbered BIO 220 or above or one Chemistry course numbered CHEM 110 or above.
