The Poison Review

The Poison Review attempts to capture some of the variety, fun, and scientific rigor of our regular toxicology teaching rounds in Chicago.  These sessions can cover anything from evaluation of the latest journal articles related to poisoning, toxicology in the news or in popular media, historical topics, musical tox . . . etc etc. Toxicology is probably the medical specialty with the most interaction between the clinical and the general culture — it’s where science meets the zeitgeist. We hope that this blog captures some of that interaction.
