Aim of the course is to provide the fundamental knowledge to understand the basic principles of toxicology through: - the characterization of toxicity manifestations and molecular mechanisms - the scientific basis of experimental toxicology - the analysis of the adverse effects of xenobiotics and drugs on organ - the analysis of the criteria for evaluating and extrapolating toxicity data to humans
Expected learning outcomes
Students will acquire the ability to critically analyze and discuss, with a coherent language, the general pathways triggered by xenobiotics and drugs to alter organ physiology, the mechanisms involved and the general rules that define their toxicity.
