ONETOX: Neural Exposome and Toxicology Programs

 

Image

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) supports basic, translational, and clinical research on the brain and nervous system and uses that knowledge to reduce the burden of neurological disease for all people. Several genetic and environmental factors affect overall brain and nervous system health, and gene-environment interactions are important in understanding complex etiologies of neurological diseases and disorders. Within the Division of Translational Research (DTR) at NINDS, ONETOX supports research and provides resources to advance knowledge of internal and external exposures that affect brain and nervous system health (Neural Exposome), leads research related to chemical threats, and provides resources that promote chemical safety.

ONETOX has three branches:

  • The Neural Exposome, which includes environmental neurotoxicants, the gut-brain axis microbiome, social behaviors, and other internal and external exposures that affect neurological disease and disorders
  • Chemical Threats, which houses the NIH Countermeasures Against Chemical Threats (NIH CounterACT) program
  • Chemical Safety, which provides resources to reduce safety liabilities related to neurotoxic drugs, biohazards, use of Select Agents, and Dual Use Research of Concern
