The Toxicology in the 21st Century (Tox21) program is a federal collaboration among NIH’s
National Toxicology Program
National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences
Environmental Protection Agency
; and the
Food and Drug Administration
. Tox21 researchers aim to develop better toxicity assessment methods to quickly and efficiently test whether certain chemical compounds have the potential to disrupt processes in the human body that may lead to negative health effects.
Learn more about the goals of the Tox21 program.
Using the Center’s high-throughput robotic screening system, NCATS scientists are testing
a collection of 10,000 environmental chemicals and approved drugs
(called the Tox21 10K library) for their potential to disrupt biological pathways that may result in toxicity. The team prioritizes promising compounds identified from primary screening for further in-depth investigation.
Learn more about how the Tox21 program works.
