What is Toxicology ?

Toxicology is the study of the adverse effects of chemicals on living organisms. Toxicology involves the study of symptoms, mechanisms, treatments and detection of poisoning - especially the poisoning of people, accidentally or deliberately.

The specialised sub-disciplines within toxicology include, for example:

  • Aquatic toxicology,
  • Chemical toxicology,
  • Eco-toxicology,
  • Environmental toxicology,
  • Forensic toxicology,
  • Medical toxicology,
  • Toxicogenomics (molecular profiling applied to toxicology).

These sub-disciplines of toxicology cover activities necessary in a wide range of jobs and careers.
