IDSP 250 - Current Trends in Toxicology


1 Credit

A discussion format in which students, postdoctoral fellows, research personnel and faculty from the Health Sciences Center with a common interest in Toxicology and Environmental Health meet to present emerging concepts, research data and hypothesis-driven research proposals in all toxicological sub-specialties. Topics will be selected from peer-reviewed Toxicology-based literature, from research findings from the participant’s own laboratories, or from proposals in preparation for external funding. Class sessions will include occasional, scheduled meetings with Toxicologists from nearby institutions in the tri-state area. Students will be taught oral presentation skills, methods of evaluating current trends in Toxicology literature and research, and fundamentals of the grant-writing and review process. Grading will be based on student presentations and participation in class discussion. Section A is offered in the fall semester for 0.5 credit and Section B is offered in the spring semester for 0.5 credit.
