Advanced and Comprehensive Studies on Chemical Hazard Control (I~V)

Registration will open in late June.

JSPS  ET-core in Africa

E-learning

The environmental pollution problem is a global issue and efforts from various fields are necessary. Especially veterinary medicine is a field where bridges between humans and animals, ecosystems. Under the concept of ”One Health”, to prevent chemical hazards occurring around the world, we set up a specialist course I-V on chemical hazard countermeasures for the purpose of human resource development. Course I provides class on Field Toxicology & Risk Analysis (Assessment, Management and Communication). Course II provides methodology of chemical analyses such as LC/MS, GC/MS and ICP/MS. Course III provides Comprehensive Studies on Chemical Hazard Control. The Course IV is the classes on Environmental Remediation. The Course V is on silico (computer) analyses of the data.

I: Field Toxicology & Risk Analysis

In this class, students will learn about basic toxicology, environmental toxicology, risk analysis (risk assessment, risk management, and risk communication), food safety, and hygiene. As an emerging field, you will also study about forensic veterinary medicine and shelter medicine. Participants will learn from experts in the field how to control hazards when they become apparent and how to respond to them.

III: Comprehensive Studies on Chemical Hazard Control

In this class, you will learn the basic knowledge required for chemical hazard control. Students will be asked to study ecology, anatomy, molecular toxicology, pharmacology, pathotoxicology, and immunotoxicology. Most of these are taught in a lecture format, but some classes incorporate practical exercises. The practicals will include learning about microscopy, virtual slide technology, and patch clamping. What you learn in this class will be useful not only in chemical hazard control, but also in many other areas of research.
