From the Outreach and Special Populations Branch:
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has updated its online toxicology tutorial, ToxTutor. ToxTutor is a self-paced tutorial covering key principles of toxicology.
For almost 20 years, students and others have used ToxTutor to explore the fundamental principles of toxicology. Written in plain language and including helpful illustrations, the tutorial provides users of toxicology resources, including the NLM chemical and toxicological databases, with a basic understanding of the subject.
ToxTutor introduces toxicology by covering dose and dose response, toxic effects, interactions, toxicity testing methods, risk assessment, and exposure standards and guidelines. Additional topics will be included in future updates. A certificate of completion option is expected to be released next year.
ToxTutor is produced by the Toxicology and Environmental Health Information Program (TEHIP) of the National Library of Medicine.
Younger students (ages 7-11) can also get a basic introduction to toxic household chemicals through the interactive game ToxMystery!
