Call for Volunteers: Test a New Online Toxicology Tutorial

Tue, 07/23/2013 - 8:23am -- ajohnson

Want to know whether the chemicals you come in contact with are harmful to your health? So do toxicologists. The science of toxicology helps uncover the causes of chemical and biological hazards and seeks solutions to improve health and safety.
 
ToxLearn, a project of the National Library of Medicine and the Society of Toxicology, introduces the basic principles of toxicology to the public. Module II of this free, online tutorial will soon be available, and the ToxLearn developers are looking for beta testers before rolling out a full release.
 
To volunteer to test the tutorial now through August 2, email Phil Wexler at wexlerp@mail.nih.gov. Volunteers will be sent a copy of the module and a brief questionnaire. For additional background, view ToxLearn Module I.
