Bachelor's Degree - Toxicology Online via distance learning
Master's Degree - Toxicology Online via distance learning
Doctor Ph.D. Degree - Toxicology Online via distance learning

 

This program discusses the scientific principles underlying the toxic actions of various substances and introduces the numerous challenges of toxicology. It introduces topics such as the chemical nature of injurious substances, their uptake and metabolism, their mode of action, as well as the methods used in safety evaluations and risk assessment. The program also combines the biogeochemical cycles of toxins and their interactions with biological systems to improve the assessment of toxins' complex effect at the molecular, cellular, organismal, and ecosystem levels.

Toxicology
This course explains how chemicals, drugs, and other products alter biological systems and emphasizes the mechanisms and conditions under which harmful effects may occur. It also considers the biological and chemical factors that influence toxicity; routes of administration; experimental design; special tests; statistical analysis of data; extrapolation of animal data to man; and regulatory aspects of toxicology.
Academic Supervisor : Luis Fontanet Sallan

Biological Toxicology
This course explores toxicants; their modes of action; their cellular and molecular targets and the mechanisms by which these latter respond, and their detoxification. It shows biological methodologies and approaches to identify and study cellular targets of toxicants, and the molecular mechanisms used by chemical, physical, and biological agents to produce harmful effects on biological tissues, organ systems, and DNA.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Biochemical Toxicology
This course presents the chemical and physical processes determining the distribution and fate of chemical hazards, detection of low levels of hazardous compounds, and their environmental evaluation and prediction. It also presents a treatment of the biochemical and physiological mechanisms underlying toxicity and detoxication.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Hygiene & Safety
This course introduces the principles of industrial and community hygiene and safety. It examines the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and control of hazards to health and safety. It covers control methods and hygiene sampling equipment. Also, it helps developing skills in occupational health and safety hazard recognition in a variety of cases.
Academic Supervisor : Luis Fontanet Sallan

This course presents the principles of environmental toxicology, including the major classes of toxicants, environmental movement and fate, toxicokinetics, biotransformation, toxicodynamics, factors influencing toxicity, mechanisms of toxic action and detoxication, mutagenicity and carcinogenicity, toxicity testing and evaluation, and risk assessment.
Academic Supervisor : Vicente Enrique Martín Olmos

Environmental Risks
This course examines and compares different types of environmental risks and hazards from natural disasters (tornados, earthquakes, and meteorite impacts) to acute and chronic health effects caused by exposure to radiation and toxic substances. It emphasizes the principles controlling the hazardous phenomena and develops methods for making reasoned assessments of the threats impact to health and wealth.
Academic Supervisor : Vicente Enrique Martín Olmos

Aquatic Toxicology
This course examines the sources, cycling, and impacts of toxicants in aquatic systems, including acid rain, ground water, fresh water rivers and lakes, estuaries, and the ocean. It deals with processes at the air-water interface, the properties of toxic chemicals that influence biogeochemical cycles, and their toxicity to aquatic organisms and humans.
Academic Supervisor : Luis Fontanet Sallan

Pollutants & Pesticides
This course explores health risks and benefits associated with pesticide use and pollutants. It considers exposure, toxicity, epidemiology, and their regulation. It reviews important issues of environmental toxicology related to the introduction, transport, and fate of toxicants in aquatic and terrestrial environments, and the effects of toxicants across organ systems and at the ecosystem level.
Academic Supervisor : Luis Fontanet Sallan

Environmental Health
This course examines the relationship between people and their environment, how it affects their physical well-being, and what they can do to influence the quality of their environment and to enhance their health. It considers environmental health control programs, agencies, and regulatory process.
Academic Supervisor : Luis Fontanet Sallan

This course helps to recognize major drug classifications and their most common applications; the rationale for pharmacological intervention using selected drugs; the use of drug information sources and patient-prescriber interaction; and the principles of toxicological adverse effects, drug interaction, and drug abuse.
Academic Supervisor : Daniel Scott Janik

Toxicological Risk Assesment
This course deals with the processes and techniques used in toxicological risk assessment: problem definition, dose response characterization, exposure characterization, risk assessment, and risk management decision making.
