Course description

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.
