a

Forensic toxicologist

I first decided nicly on chemistry when

that I went to second to school one of

the chemistry teachers there was a mr.

Markin de really inspirational teacher

and the way explained things but also

made it fun we found out for example

about home metals reacted or how salts

dissolved and not offend us all real

interesting because I could see the

applications of it students should

always be allowed to carry out hands-on

experiments it helps develop the theory

to the bench relationship which is

really important for the Rhoyne in your

chemistry career but chemistry

particular interested me because at

length told our scientists together

I was particular interested in

toxicology because I'd started started

ridden a bit as field and seen that

every substance was a poison depending

on its concentration for example

products and shops who contends of had

talking through toxicology testing

any substance in the wrong amount can

can't kill a person so friends ethos

college is real important to society in

general because we can't get away from

the fact that people are abusing

substances or taking substances

accidentally in the wrong doors we have

this traditional drugs of abuse such as

heroin and cocaine and amphetamines but

we have the the newer compounds as well

and there are synthetic chemists in

certain countries in the world that are

trying to flood the market with these

compounds one of the most exciting parts

of my work has the no no D is the same

and we could we could be looking at

casework of a particular drug a poison

or it could be a new or emerging poison

we also have to have good written skills

to produce reports that are acceptable

to go to the core my vise Tournament can

sit on toxicology as a clears you should

study a basic background science first

of all and then specialized later on so

for example if you were studying physics

and chemistry you might want to look at

the toxicity of isotopes if you study

biochemistry then you may may be

interested in how chemicals react within

tissues if you study biology then you

may be interested in home toxicology and

reacts on certain species

probably the best bit of advice I've

been governing my clear is to be

determined do not give up I Fe always

try hard and work hard no matter how

you're feeling opportunities will

eventually come your way
