Toxicology and Societies Speaker Series

Toxicology and Societies: The Impacts of Chemicals in Our Lives

Brought to you in partnership with Huxley's Institute of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (IETC) and the WWU Alumni Association

Western’s Institute of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (IETC) and the WWU Alumni Association is sponsoring this speaker series to help people better appreciate and understand how toxicology is important to them, their families, their friends, and their communities.  In short, how does Toxicology affect Society?  Toxicology is also called

‘the science of poisons’, as it deals with any chemicals that affect health in a negative way.  Over the course of the next several months, we will be hosting a series of presentations that explore the many facets of this issue. Learn more about this series.
