Overview

Honours Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Toxicology - Optional Co-op

Toxicologists study the effects and mechanisms of action of toxic substances on living systems. Those systems can be human, plant, animal or microbial and the toxins may be natural or synthetic. The adverse effects caused by toxins may be as mild as to cause an annoyance or as severe as to be a threat to life. Toxicology is an inter-disciplinary field involving chemistry, biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, physiology and risk management. There are 2 primary areas of focus for toxicology. Those areas are biomedical or environmental.

In the biomedical focus, students will concentrate on toxicology as applied to mammalian systems, including humans. The program will include courses in mammalian physiology, pharmacology, and pathology. Students will be concerned with issues such as the risk of cancer from exposure to environmental agents, including both natural and synthetic chemicals. The study of the metabolism of carcinogenic and other toxic substances, and the effects of these substances on DNA will also be discussed. Students will also learn about epidemiology (the distribution of toxic effects on large populations of organisms), how toxic substances act at the molecular level ( biochemical toxicology), as well as their effects on the whole animal ( toxicological pathology).

Explore the effects and mechanisms of action of toxic substances in biomedical toxicology. Study substances of interest including pharmaceuticals, metals, industrial chemicals, and natural toxins. Examine toxicological testing required to assure the safety of new drugs, consumer products, pesticides and industrial chemicals before they go to market. Develop a strong foundation in science disciplines related to toxicology and forge a related career.

Also available in co-op.

The Co-op program in Biomedical Toxicology is a five year program, including four work terms. Students must complete a Fall, Winter and Summer work term.

Note: A minimum of three Co-op work terms including a Summer, Fall, and Winter are necessary to complete the Co-op requirement. *A fourth Co-op work term is optional and if completed, the total number of credits will equal 22.00.
