Laboratory of Veterinary Toxicology

Veterinary toxicology is to identify the factors of toxic symptoms caused by various exogenous substances in the animal body, understand the mechanism of toxic action, and apply them to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of harmful effects caused by toxic substances. We aim at contributing to the development of toxicology and non-clinical fields by identifying toxicity-specific biomarkers and establishing toxicity research models and toxicity evaluation methods using them.
