EPA's Computational Toxicology research (CompTox) is pa0rt of EPA's broader Chemical Safety research efforts. Since current chemical testing is expensive and time consuming, only a small fraction of chemicals have been fully evaluated for potential adverse human health effects. CompTox is researching new, more efficient, ways to address managing the safety of chemicals, particularly in assessing chemicals for human health effects. Read More

High-Throughput Chemical Screening, Exposure Prediction Models & Virtual Simulation Models

CompTox's innovative research projects identify important biological processes that may be disrupted by chemicals and tracing those biological disruptions to related dose and human exposure to chemicals.

Chemical Safety Research Grants & Funding

EPA's Science to Achieve Results or STAR program provides funding to research centers in specific areas of chemicals related research.
