The General Toxicology programme has been planned to allow its graduates to become competent human chemical risk assessors. It clarifies the EU directives which are the basis for toxicological risk assessment, as well as acknowledging the recent attempts at global harmonization of the categorization of all chemicals (new chemicals, medicines, cosmetics).

The teaching is based on the very latest scientific knowledge in human toxicology and the about what is required for human risk assessment in the drug and chemical fields. In addition, Finnish national and EU-level legislation and regulations in risk assessment are taken into account in the curriculum.

Career or after graduation opportunities

There is a great demand for toxicologists, as several chemicals and products of the biotechnology industry are awaiting risk assessments. The programme also provides a solid background for any student wishing to pursue PhD studies in toxicology and related sciences.
