What is Toxicology?

Toxicology is the study of the adverse effects of chemical, physical, or biological agents on people, animals, and the environment.

Toxicologists are scientists trained to investigate, interpret, and communicate the nature of those effects.

Did You Know?

In 1927, Dr. J. W. Trevan, who was affiliated with the Wellcome Foundation and its laboratories, devised a method of determining toxicity by estimating the dose that is lethal for 50 percent of test animals—the LD50 test. The test ultimately came to be used to test the toxicity of drugs and other chemicals, and has generated extensive data that is helpful in protecting human and animal health and the environment.
