The ToxMSDT online component comprises of six case study modules: pathophysiology, biochemistry and molecular genetics, principles of genetic toxicology, applied systems toxicology, regulatory toxicology, and principles of toxicology.
These learning modules provide engaging content to facilitate skills development and knowledge acquisition opportunities for mentees as well as the public. All teaching resources are free of charge, available 24/7 and after successful completion ToxMSDT will issue a certificate of completion.
In thismodule you will learn the fundamental principles of toxicology, including dose-response relationships, how chemicals enter the body and how they are metabolized and excreted, major health outcomes of intoxications, basics of physiology, toxicokinetics, and cellular toxicology. ToxTutor was adopted from the U.S National Library of Medicine in 2021.
The genetic toxicology methodology or assay technique helps to test or evaluate the level of damages of the genetic information caused by toxicants or agents within the cells. In this case study module you will learn about different genetic toxicology assays, different genetic damages, and cytotoxicity and epigenetics assays.
Pathophysiology is the study of the physical and functional changes that occur during a disease process. In this module you will learn about the concept of pathophysiology, types of toxicity, repair and adaptation, and patterns of toxic injury.
Systems toxicology is a branch of science that utilizes data from different branches of toxicology and integrates them to provide a holistic approach for safety assessment. In this module you will learn about the concept of systems toxicology, dose level in toxicology, and different approaches to traditional and new toxicology.
Biochemistry is the study of chemical processes within and related to living organisms. In this module you will learn about biomolecules and cell components, cell structure and subcellular compartments, DNA and RNA metabolism, and epigenetic mechanisms.
Regulatory toxicology is where the science of toxicology meets the regulations, policies and guidelines that protect human health and the environment from chemicals. In this module you will learn about global, regional, national, state, and non-governmental regulatory toxicology.
