Toxicology of Chemical Weapons

Module code: CH7906

Toxicology of Chemical Weapons focuses on how weaponised chemical agents affect the human body and how to manage a mass casualty event. This module is structured to comprehensively provide the student with the fundamental toxicologically relevant concepts of weapons that can be used to create mass casualties. These weapons are often called weapons of mass destruction, a term that is closely related to but not synonymous with mass-casualty weapons (a technically more appropriate term). This course will focus on chemical agents and toxins as the toxicologically relevant mass-casualty weapons. The module will consist of a variety of teaching material and study tips, and assignments designed to stimulate critical thinking.
