Intro to Toxicology

Introduction to Toxicology for the Non-Specialist - 2-day training course by PTI

Reduced boundaries between the preclinical and clinical research processes requires that regulatory authorities support multi-disciplinary cooperation. That is why specialised professionals in the pharmaceuticals industry have to interact with a wider variety of disciplines, each of which with an astonishing breadth of knowledge and ongoing research.

A better understanding of the toxicology field could help identify and prevent drug recalls, often resulted from unexpected toxicity in humans. Toxicology is a growing discipline, with a direct impact on the developments within pharmaceuticals. This hands-on, two-day training course will cover the essential processes in this fascinating subject, helping participants who come from different fields be more confident when interacting with specialists in this area.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This training course is aimed at professionals in the pharmaceuticals industry specialising in R&D processes. The programme is especially suitable for those who come into contact with toxicology data, but who are not specialist toxicologists.

Delegates may come from preclinical and clinical development branches, regulatory affairs, project management, drug safety, registration and data management. No previous knowledge of toxicology is assumed.
