Biomarkers can be used to indicate an exposure to or effect of a contaminant on an organism and are widely used in (eco)toxicology. This year, CERAD is introducing a new course “Effect and biomarker methods in (eco)toxicology”. Registration deadline is August 16th!

New course on biomarker methods in (eco)toxicology (FMI330)

The course will introduce students to the basics of the biomarker methods and biological effects that can be studied using these methods. It will also address application of those methods in (eco)toxicology for potential use in research and regulation.

The course will contain both lectures and practical laboratory exercises. Students will be able to learn the theoretical basis for assessment of exposure, effects and risk of stressors of natural and anthropological origin. It will also cover experimental designs, study planning, execution of toxicity studies, statistical approaches and principles of scientific dissemination. Laboratory exercises will teach how to perform toxicity testing using a variety of methods.

More information about the course can be found on the course webpage.
