Toxicogenomics Research Consortium Formed
NIEHS awarded $37 million to five academic research organizations to form a Toxicogenomics Research Consortium with the Institute's own National Center for Toxicogenomics. Building a library of known toxins and the genes they turn "on" or "off " the center seeks to use an array of cloned genes to review chemicals for toxicity. Later, the technology may be used on individual patients to tailor preventive, diagnostic, and treatment methods.
