On 8th of September Dr. Matthew Gribble had meeting with David Tvildiani Medical University’s students. Dr. Gribble is an epidemiologist and toxicologist visiting from Emory University Rollins School of Public Health, where he is on the faculty of Environmental Health. Dr. Gribble is an expert on arsenic which is a contaminant of concern in some parts of Georgia due to former Soviet arsenic mining. Dr. Gribble presented an introductory lecture, with support from the Society of Toxicology International ToxScholar Program (http://www.toxicology.org/awards/gf/toxscholar.asp), about the science of toxicology, opportunities for international students of toxicology, and a brief introduction to the arsenic challenges in Georgia. The goal of the International ToxScholar program administered by the Society of Toxicology is to improve awareness of opportunities in the field of Toxicology especially for students in low and middle income countries. Georgia is an eligible country, and the legacy of Soviet arsenic mining at Tsana (see attached brochures) means there may be possibilities for arsenic research opportunities in the future within the country.
