Environmental exposure to potential toxic substances occurs every day through air, soil, or water contamination. The current research focuses on risks related to chemical, biological, and physics agents in the environment, the work place and the food chain. Methods for investigation and assessment of risks to human health have been evolving in the last few years.
During this five-day residential summer school, the students will be introduced to the various approaches used in risk assessment: exposure assessment, toxicology (the science of poisons) and epidemiology (the science of public health). Students will attend a series of lecture courses at an intermediate/advanced level. The students also participate in exercises, case studies and practical sessions under the guidance of the teacher.
Collaborations: ARPAE Emilia Romagna and Italian Network Environment and Health, Italian Ministry of Health (RIAS)
