Faces of Toxicology Videos

We are delighted to announce our third Faces of Toxicology video.  The latest film in the collection features Dr Ravikumar Majeti (Texas A&M University). Ravi shot this film using a smart phone, some additional audio equipment and film making tips from Iheartmedia, who also edited the film. RSC Toxicology is keen to support members interested in creating media to promote awareness and understanding of toxicology to wider audiences. 

Ravi’s film, along with those featuring Calum Morrison (University of Glasgow, Analytical Toxicology), Professor Vicki Stone (Heriot-Watt University, Nanotoxicology) can be viewed by following the links below.

These three films have been produced in association with the RSC Analytical Division (Scotland) and used our International Year of Chemistry funding supplied by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
