CEVAP’S NEW POST-GRADUATION TEACHING CONCEPTS IN TOXINOLOGY

 

The II International Specialization Course on Toxinology between February 22 and May 20 1999 was a great success. This has prompted the Center for the Study of Venoms and Venomous Animals – CEVAP/UNESP to plan a III Course, and also create a Virtual Specialization Course on Toxinology, a first in Brazil and Latin America.

This Virtual Course will use modern concepts, such as long-distance teaching and take full advantage of the Internet. Information will be provided on the biology of venomous animals, biochemical and physiophatological characteristics of microbial, plant, and animal toxins, and human and animal envenomings.

This Course will comprise of five Units, with credits being given to students at the end of each Unit. It will combine both theoretical and practical activities, using a specific bibliography, with the students preparing dissertations under specialist guidance from CEVAP.

This modern teaching concept will be supported by The Journal of Venomous Animals and Toxins, where results of scientific research will be published. This Course aims to provide specialized training necessary to conduct research, teach, and render community assistance in the area of Toxinology.
