Faces of Toxicology Videos

We are delighted to announce our sixth Faces of Toxicology short film featuring Tim Allen (MRC Toxicology Unit).

Our 'Introduction to Toxicology' animation provides some essential background to the 'science of poisons' in a fun and fact-filled way. The Faces of Toxicology film series highlights the wide variety of topics and careers that Toxicology offers. The Faces of Toxicology films are produced by filmmakers WeLove Media and the animation is a collaboration between animators Thom DeQuin Sansom and Chris Soulsby and WeLove Media. 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.

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 Tim’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), Nick Ball (Dow Chemical Company) and George Loizou (HSL) can be viewed by following the links below.
