Students are evaluated by their performance on written tests and assignments.
This course must be requested through ACORN. 
Tuesdays, 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

JNP1016S Graduate Seminar in Toxicology - This course is offered every other year.
Coordinator: Dr. Cindy Woodland (Dept. of Pharmacology, 416-978-3102, e-mail: cindy.woodland@utoronto.ca
This course is a seminar-based course in which students critique scientific papers in the area of toxicology. Students are evaluated by oral and written critiques of the scientific literature and by their participation in class discussions. 
This course must be requested through ACORN. 
Wednesdays, 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. 

JNP1017S The Molecular and Biochemical Basis of Toxicology - This course is offered every other year.
Coordinator: Prof. P.J. O'Brien (Faculty of Pharmacy, 416-978-2716; e-mail: obrien@phm.utoronto.ca
This course emphasizes the biochemical principles and mechanisms underlying the toxicity of drugs and foreign agents. A journal club format is used to examine and critically evaluate the current hypotheses that explain the events at the molecular level, which determine and affect toxicity. This course is suitable for graduate students of pharmacy, toxicology, pharmacology, environmental science, biochemistry, pathology, neuroscience, and medical biophysics. 
This course must be requested through ACORN. 
Wednesdays, 4:00-6:00 p.m.

CHL5912F Industrial Toxicology 
Coordinator: Dr.G. Kalabis (Gage Occupational and Environmental Health Unit,  416-978-4353; e-mail: g.kalabis@utoronto.ca
This course is offered by the Graduate Department of Public Health Sciences and covers dose-response and dose-effect relationships and their application; principles governing the absorption, distribution, metabolism, detoxification and oxidation of chemicals in humans; and the effects of industrial chemicals on important organ systems and factors which may modify toxicity. 
Tuesdays, 1:00 to 4:00 pm
