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.
The Toxicology Portfolio is inspected frequently by the USPHC Quality Systems Office (QSO) for compliance with good laboratory practices (GLP). We are accredited by the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC) , and an institutional member of the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS) .
We present biannually to our peer review board, which has boasted members from Oak Ridge National Laboratory; University Research Engineers and Associates, Inc.; Aquabio, Inc.; the US Environmental Protection Agency; Honeywell; DuPont; Saady Consulting; Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health; and Biosante International, Inc.
