Toxicologic Pathology: An Introduction

Wanda M Haschek-Hock, Colin G. Rousseaux, Matthew A. Wallig, Brad Bolon

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Toxicologic pathologists are essential to maintaining human, animal, and environmental health in modern societies. Their expertise in integrating morphological, molecular, and mechanistic data permits them to discern a subject's individual health or treatment group's collective susceptibility following exposure to novel materials. Their broad understanding of comparative biology, pathology, and toxicology makes them adept at translating animal data to identify hazards, assess safety, and manage potential risks. Thus, toxicologic pathologists are well suited to play many pivotal roles in discovering and developing new products to promote health, prevent disease, and improve the quality of individual and communal life.
