Welcome to Principles of Environmental Toxicology

FST 409/509 EnvS 409/509

Greg MollerEnvironmental toxicology is the study of the nature, properties, effects and detection of toxic substances in the environment and in any environmentally exposed species, including humans.

This course will provide a general understanding of toxicology related to the environment. Fundamental concepts will be covered including dose-response relationships, absorption of toxicants, distribution and storage of toxicants, biotransformation and elimination of toxicants, target organ toxicity, teratogenesis, mutagenesis, carcinogenesis and risk assessment. In the second part of the course, we will study the chemodynamics of contaminants in the environment including fate and transport. The course will examine chemicals of environmental interest and how they are tested and regulated. We will critically review case studies and special topics. I hope you enjoy the course.
