In collaboration with a host of DoD, government, private, and international entities, the Toxicology Directorate provides data about the toxicity of military-unique and military-relevant compounds and the risks they pose to Soldiers, civilians and the environment.‚Äč

The Toxicology Directorate comprises two integrated divisions: Health Effects and Toxicity Evaluation. They perform basic and applied research using animal models, genetic and cellular toxicology, and computer modeling. The Division of Toxicologic Pathology supports the divisions' animal studies.

All experiments in the directorate 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 APHC Quality Systems and Regulatory Compliance Office (QSARC).
