Earth Sciences - Chemical and Environmental Toxicology
|Field of Study:
||Geology/Earth Science, General
||Toxicology is the study of effects of toxic substances on living systems. These toxic substances can either be organic or inorganic, synthetic or natural materials. Environmental toxicology further extends to aspects of chemical transport, fate, persistence and biological accumulation of toxic substances and their effects at the population and community levels. While individual researchers usually specialize in a particular area, toxicologists today must be able to appreciate significant research in other fields and therefore require an understanding of the basic principles of other disciplines. To meet this challenge the University of Ottawa and Carleton University offer a joint collaborative program leading to a master of science with specialization in chemical and environmental toxicology. This Ottawa-Carleton collaborative program in Chemical and Environmental Toxicology is intended to augment the research and training available to students through the individual supporting institutes.
Participating units: The Ottawa-Carleton Geoscience Centre (OCGC), the joint graduate program of the departments of Earth Sciences at the University of Ottawa and Carleton University.
