Toxicology and Carcinogenesis

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Center is an interdepartmental system that provides an environment for research efforts in molecular toxicology by Center Investigators and affiliated faculty in the departments of Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Chemistry, Medicine, Pathology, and Pharmacology. This center has been funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences since 1967. The overall goals of the Center continue to be (1) understanding phenomena of toxicological interest in chemical terms, (2) answering questions related to toxicity at the biochemical level, and (3) applying such chemical and biochemical knowledge to problems involving human health. Efforts toward accomplishing the goals will ultimately contribute to understanding and developing preventative measures for human diseases.
