Abstract

日本の毒性学の専門教育は主として医学部,薬学部,獣医学部等において行われていて,毒性学専門学部あるいは博士過程での一貫した教育過程はない.しかし,毒性学専門家の認定資格の取得には,広範な毒性学の体系的な学習と実践が必要である.その毒性学専門家の人材育成において佐々木研究所は大きな役割を果たしてきた.研究所は3部門からなり,とくに病理部では化学発がん,血液,神経,内分泌臓器,肝等の発がん機序の研究と毒性学の人材が豊富で,がんのみに偏らない豊富な知見の蓄積がある.研究所の研修生は,研究はもとよりバランスのとれた毒性評価の実力を身につけて大学,企業等の幅広い分野で貢献している.佐々木研究所の毒性学専門家の育成への熱意と貢献は計り知れない.

Toxicologists who can evaluate toxicology data and plan regulatory management systems are insufficient in number in Japan. This is mainly due to lack of programs dedicated to toxicology in the education system. For example, except for my department (the Department of Molecular Toxicology at the Nagoya City University Graduate School of Medical Sciences), there are no graduate courses for the toxicologist. Education for toxicologists is mainly carried out in graduate courses in medical, veterinary, and pharmaceutical schools along with research work not directly relevant to toxicology. These courses do not include lectures or research devoted to toxicology as the primary subject matter. The Sasaki Institute, where the Department of Pathology is located, has an experienced, enthusiastic staff who have expertise in toxicology in general and in one or more specific fields of study encompassed by this discipline. This institute has contributed greatly to the training of graduate and postgraduate students aiming for a seat on the board of toxicologists.
