The National Library of Medicine (NLM) ToxLearn, Module II: Cells and Tissues: Injury and Repair (http://toxlearn.nlm.nih.gov/Module2.htm), is now available. It offers an introduction to biological molecules, cells, tissues, and organs and to how they might be affected by toxicants. It also explains principles of cell damage and tissue repair and reviews physiological and morphological changes.
Created in partnership with the Society of Toxicology (http://www.toxicology.org/), ToxLearn is a multi-module online learning tool that provides an introduction to basic principles of toxicology. It can be used as a supplementary curriculum to a first-level undergraduate toxicology course and can assist users in interpreting search retrieval from NLM’s TOXNET databases.
