NLM Toxicology and Environmental Health Info
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has added material to its online toxicology tutorial, ToxTutor. The new sections cover Basic Physiology, an Introduction to Toxicokinetics, Absorption, Distribution, Biotransformation, Excretion, and Cellular Toxicology.
ToxTutor is self-paced and covers key principles of toxicology. Animations include "From a Gel to a Cell," which follows the journey
of a chemical in a hypothetical shower gel product through several membranes into a cell. The tutorial also offers a glossary of more than 300 toxicology-related terms.
ToxTutor has been used for almost twenty years to explore the fundamentals of toxicology. It is written in plain language, includes
helpful illustrations, and provides users of toxicology resources, including those of the NLM, with a basic understanding of the subject.
If a certificate of completion is needed, the tutorial can be completed through a free learning management system.
