T oxLearn, a new National Library of Medicine® (NLM) resource, is now available.
ToxLearn is a multi-module online learning tool that provides an introduction to toxicology. It can be used as an ancillary curriculum to a first-level undergraduate toxicology course, and can provide users of NLM toxicology databases with a working knowledge of basic toxicology principles. "Introduction to Toxicology and Dose-Response" is the first module. Additional units will be made available as they are completed.
ToxLearn is an update of NLM Toxicology Tutors, which was designed to provide a basic understanding of toxicology as an aid for users of toxicology literature contained in the NLM toxicological and chemical databases.
ToxLearn will update and expand on that effort. Both tutorials will be accessible while ToxLearn is finished.
