Impact Story: Alexander Lazar, MD
Alexander Lazar, MD
Medical Toxicology in Industry Program - October 2023 Rotation
"This was an excellent experience and I would highly recommend it to any medical toxicology fellow. It incorporates a review of fundamental and high level biology and biochemical principles and integrates the fundamentals of regulator toxicology in both agricultural and pharmaceutical divisions. All lectures were provided by experts in their respective area and were open to candid questions about their time and experience within industry. Thank you for a wonderful month and looking forward to working with you all in the future."
