Why to study
There is a great demand for toxicologists because so many chemicals and products of the biotechnology industry are awaiting risk assessments. The General Toxicology programme, offered at the University of Eastern Finland, also provides a solid background for any student wishing to pursue PhD studies in toxicology and related sciences.
There is a clear shortage of toxicologists capable of making chemical risk assessments in humans, and our program aims to partly answer this need. The program has been planned to allow its graduates to become competent human chemical risk assessors. The program 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).
