Toxicological Sciences

Students develop advanced laboratory research skills to progress their career in the field of toxicology. Students enhance their understanding of the interaction of toxins with molecular targets, target organ toxicity, and the role of the immune system in the response to toxins. Students learn about specific tests used in both research and industry, such as toxicological screening programmes used by drug and medical companies. Students develop their ability to analyse scientific literature and how to present scientific information, improving their presentation and communication skills. Students have access to a variety of research projects which align with the expertise of our staff, including toxicity testing using cell culture methods and developing smart bandages for wound care.
