Dartmouth Toxic Metals Research Program "At Dartmouth we have formed a diverse group of scientists to study and teach about toxic metals in the environment. We created this site to share what we've learned and to provide an interactive resource for facts, research and news on metals known to be harmful to living systems. We invite your comments and suggestions. This project is sponsored by a Superfund Basic Research Program Project Grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences."

IRIS (Integrated Risk Information System EPA. Searchable. IRIS is a database of human health effects that may result from exposure to various substances found in the environment. IRIS was initially developed for EPA staff in response to a growing demand for consistent information on chemical substances for use in risk assessments, decision-making and regulatory activities. The information in IRIS is intended for those without extensive training in toxicology, but with some knowledge of health sciences.

Toxicology Tutorials National Library of Medicine Specialized Information Services. The Toxicology Tutors are intended to provide a basic understanding of toxicology as an aide for users of toxicology literature contained in the National Library of Medicine's Chemical and Toxicological databases.

  • Toxicology Tutor 1- Basic Principles Toxicology Tutor I is the first in a set of three tutorials on toxicology produced by the Toxicology and Environmental Health Information Program of the National Library of Medicine, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It covers Basic Principles of toxicology and is written at the introductory college student level.
  • Toxicology Tutor 2 - Toxicokinetcs Toxicokinetics is essentially the study of how a substance gets into the body and what happens to it in the body, including absorption, distribution, biotransformation and exretion.
  • Toxicology Tutor 3 - Cellular Toxicology This tutorial covers the basic toxic mechanisms that operate at the cell level which includes those that interfere with normal biochemical functions. While the study of cells and biochemicals is immensely complex, our intent is to present this subject in terms and concepts that is understandable to introductory college students.

  • EXTOXNET The EXtension TOXicology NETwork. Pesticide Information Profiles, Toxicology Information Briefs, Toxicology Issues of Concern, Factsheets, Newsletters, FAQs. Searchable.

  • Pesticide Information Profiles Pesticide Information Profiles (PIPs) are documents which provide specific pesticide information relating to health and environmental effects. Pips are not based on an exhaustive literature search. The information does not in any way replace or supersede the information on the pesticide product labeling or other regulatory requirements.
  • Toxicology Information Briefs EXTOXNET. Toxicology Information Briefs are short descriptions of a variety of issues that pertain to pesticides such as health and environmental effects. The TIBs are intended to assist in the understanding and interpretation of the PIPs (Pesticide Information Profiles).
