Faces of Toxicology Videos


We are delighted to announce our new ‘Introduction to Toxicology’ animation and fourth Faces of Toxicology video. The animation is a collaboration between animators Thom DeQuin Sansom and Chris Soulsby and filmmakers WeLove Media. It provides some essential background to the 'science of poisons' in a fun and fact-filled way.

Our latest addition to the Faces of Toxicology series is Nick Ball (Dow Chemical Company). Nick shot the film at the Midland laboratory in Michigan and the company's European headquarters in Zurich, with help from the company's media unit. It gives an insight into Nick's career in chemistry and his busy role in testing, safety and regulation in one of the world's largest chemical companies. The final film was edited by WeLove Media, who helped Nick to create his piece.

RSC Toxicology is keen to support any of our members interested in creating media to promote awareness and understanding of toxicology to wider audiences.

The animation along with Nick’s film, and those featuring Calum Morrison (University of Glasgow, Analytical Toxicology), Professor Vicki Stone (Heriot-Watt University, Nanotoxicology) and Dr Ravikumar Majeti (Texas A&M University) can be viewed by following the links below.

The two earliest films were produced in association with the RSC Analytical Division (Scotland) and used our International Year of Chemistry funding supplied by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
