The Center conducts research through the dedicated efforts of staff in seven divisions. The NCTR Research Divisions are committed to the study of biochemical and molecular markers of cancer, nutritional modulation of risk and toxicity, developmental toxicity, neurotoxicity, quantitative risk assessment, transgenics, applied and environmental microbiology, and solid-state toxicity. Each division works closely with the others in a seamless effort to support the FDA's mission to bring safe and efficacious products to the market rapidly and to reduce the risk of adverse health effects from products on the market.
