EHS616: Introduction to Toxicological Pathology

  • Graduate level
  • Residential
  • Fall term(s) for residential students;
  • 2 credit hour(s) for residential students;
  • Instructor(s): Ingrid Bergin (Residential);
  • Last offered Fall 2022
  • Prerequisites: Physiology and EHS 511 or equivalent.
  • Description: This course will provide and introduction to the histologic damage produced by chemical toxicants. A combination of lectures, student-led discussions and slide-reading sessions will be used to integrate concepts of toxicological mechanism, physiology and pathologic outcome. Emphasis will be place on molecular methods and mechanisms used for the diagnosis and investigative toxicological pathology. The pathology associated with chemicals that damage the major organ systems of humans and mammals will be discussed. During the two credit hours of didactic class presentations student will lead discussions on the pathologic effects of chemicals on cells, tissues and organs and the pathophysiologic outcome. This course is intended for advanced graduate students in the life sciences.
