Unit Mission

The MRC Toxicology Unit mission is to deliver mechanistic toxicology research, with a particular focus on the study of the links between exposure to chemicals, radiation and therapeutic agents including new classes of biologics, molecular initiating events and adverse outcome pathways.  The Unit uses a range of systems-based approaches to address key questions in this area. The Unit continues to develop the translation of its basic research into clinically and public health-relevant outcomes.
