When Good Chemicals Go Bad – A Seminar

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Society of Toxicology (SOT) partnered with the Smithsonian Institution’s Resident Associates program in 2011 to present the full day seminar captured in these videos.  Topics included the history of toxicology, general principles, air and water pollution, environmental epigenomics, nanotoxicology, and alternatives to animal testing.  See the agenda below.  Many of the issues discussed can also be found in more recent or upcoming Tox Topics here on the TEF website.   Please note that although the videos are somewhat longer than others on the TEF site, your patience will be rewarded.  And although this course may be slightly more technical than TEF’s other video offerings, it was prepared for a general audience without any particular scientific background, and offers a good introduction to various historical, fundamental, and contemporary aspects of toxicology.  The SOT is the world’s largest society of professional toxicologists, many of whom founded TEF or are past or current Trustees of TEF.   Therefore, TEF is pleased to promote public outreach efforts of SOT like “When Chemicals Go Bad”.
