Posted at 10:11 am January 24, 2017, in Student News

Training the next generation of toxicologists skilled in risk assessment is critical for ensuring the safety of pharmaceuticals and consumer products. As part of our three-course series in risk assessment, the JGPT and Colgate-Palmolive launched a 2-credit elective in “Consumer Product Safety and Sustainability”. This hands on, skills-based course provides trainees with practical real-world experiences in assessing the safety of consumer products. This course is coordinated by Drs. Marie Fortin and Kristian Fried from Colgate-Palmolive.


The first two courses taught by scientists from Bristol-Myers Squibb and Novartis were held in Fall 2015 and Fall 2016, respectively.
