ViiNational Center for Toxicological Research

The NCTR is somewhat different from the other FDA centers. This center is charged with providing a source of scientific expertise on which the FDA can draw in making regulatory decisions. As such, the center is more involved in undertaking scientific research, particularly on understanding the manner in which toxicity of certain substances is expressed in biological organisms; it is not directly involved in deciding how to apply the results of that research within the spheres of responsibility of the other centers.
