Description :

Toxicology is a multidisciplinary topic which encompasses many biological subjects such as molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology & medicine, and environmental & public health, etc. When exposed to toxic substances, the resulted toxicological effects can be determined by many factors such as the forms and toxicities of toxicants, dose of intake, ways of adsorption, difference in metabolism and genetic factors of individuals, etc. Common pathological changes of selected organs are set as our study focus over a four-week span. The cause and effect and toxicological mechanisms will also be discussed.
