Learning objectives
The aim of the course is to introduce the students to the main classes of xenobiotics (natural and synthetic molecules) exerting toxic effects on humans. Exposure conditions are examined, the toxic effects are described, and the molecular mechanisms explaining the toxicity of the different molecules are analyzed. Experimental and epidemiological data defining the risk assessment are critically analysed. Another objective of the course is that of providing knowledge of the legislation in the environmental and occupational health and safety fields for the protection of the environment, flora, fauna, ecosystems and human health from the impacts deriving from human activities. The knowledge of the prescriptions in this area represents a useful completion of the professional skills both for those who will work in companies that have to deal with these regulatory requirements, and for those who will work at environmental protection agency, at analysis laboratories or who will support the institutions in identifying new emission limits based on available technologies or discoveries about the toxic effects of the substances used in production processes.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course the student must demonstrate to possess an adequate knowledge of the toxic effects of natural and synthetic molecules and of the mechanisms explaining their toxicity. The student is also expected to be able to critically analyse toxicological issues, based on the available data: experimental, occupational and epidemiological.
Expected learning outcomes also include: acquisition of the bases to understand environmental legislation and on Health and Safety; knowledge of the objectives and principles of the environmental legislation and on Health and Safety; knowledge of the main mandatory regulatory aspects applicable in companies, organizations, laboratories, and used by supervisory bodies in the control activities about environmental impacts and about the Health and Safety.
