Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

I am inviting you to submit your manuscripts to this Special Issue. Toxicology is the science of studying the health effects of toxins and toxicants, identifying their adverse effects using methods from the fields of biology, chemistry, pharmacology, and medicine. Over the past century, rapid industrialization and urbanization has increased injury to human health from chemical substances.

This Special Issue will focus on, but is not limited to, environmental and occupational pollutants such as organic solvents, heavy metals, pesticides, endocrine disrupters, cyanobacteria and cyanotoxins, and exploring their exposure routes, toxicokinetics, toxicodynamics, mechanisms, metabolism, biomarkers, and toxicogenomics, as well as their risk-assessment-related biomonitoring during exposure assessments and workplace health surveillance.

Because the goal and scope of this Special Issue are wide, a wide range of professions are welcome to discuss and debate interdisciplinally. Papers and manuscripts, including reviews, case studies, brief reports, and research articles are all welcome.

Prof. Dr. Hung-Yi Chuang
Guest Editor
