In collaboration with a host of DoD, government, private, and international entities, the Toxicology Portfolio provides data about the toxicity of military-unique and military-relevant compounds and the risks they pose to Soldiers, civilians and the environment.
The Toxicology Portfolio comprises two integrated programs: Health Effects Research and Toxicity Evaluation. They perform basic and applied research using animal models, genetic and cellular toxicology, genomics and computer modeling.
All experiments in the portfolio are performed in compliance with Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) regulations. This is ensured by regular inspections by the Quality Office (QO) of the USAPHC Quality Systems and Regulatory Compliance Office (QSARC).
