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.
