At the end of the course in TOXICOLOGY, the student will be able to:
1. Know and understand the basic concepts of toxicokinetics and toxicodynamics, the toxicokinetic and toxicodynamic properties of the main classes of xenobiotics and the general principles of the process of risk management (knowledge and understanding).
2. Apply the acquired knowledge to classify xenobiotics on the basis of the mechanism of action and to evaluate the risk-benefit relationship for xenobiotics, in general, and for drugs, in particular (ability to apply knowledge and understanding).
3. Analyze and compare the effects of xenobiotics belonging to the same and different classes and to evaluate independently the results of toxicological risk assessment (making judgements).
4. Connect together the different topics developed during the course and to link them with the related disciplines. To be able to widen the knowledge in toxicology also by browsing the scientific production and databases in the field (ability to learn).
5. Communicate the acquired knowledge and clearly convey the information on the nature and mechanism of action of xenobiotics and on the results of risk assessment (communicative skills).
