ENVM 644 - Environmental Toxicology (2)

This course investigates the impacts pollutants have on the structure and function of ecosystems and human health. The conceptual framework of environmental toxicology will be used as a basis for probing various aspects of environmental health. Some of the fundamentals to be covered include environmental chemodynamics, abiotic- and bio-transformations, and distribution (toxicokinetics), and intoxication mechanisms and the expression of toxic action (toxicodynamics).
