Resources for Scientists

NIEHS has several resources available to researchers, both inside and outside of the Institute.


Journals and Reference

  • Bisphenol A-related Journal Articles and Stories

    Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical produced in large quantities for use primarily in the production of polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. The NIEHS has compiled a collection of information on BPA, including press releases, fact sheets, and research papers.

  • Digitized Atlas of Mouse Liver Lesions

    The Digitized Atlas of Mouse Liver Lesions page contains both search by subject and search by pathology.

  • Report on Carcinogens

    The 13th Report on Carcinogens  was released on October 2, 2014. The Report on Carcinogens (RoC) is a congressionally mandated, science-based, public health document that the NTP prepared for the HHS Secretary. The report identifies agents, substances, mixtures, and exposure circumstances that are known or reasonably anticipated to cause cancer in humans.

  • Environmental Health Perspectives

    Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP) is the journal of the NIEHS and serves as a forum for the discussion of the interrelationships between the environment and human health. It publishes peer-reviewed research and the most current and credible news of the field.

  • Institutional Review Board

    The mandate of the NIEHS Institutional Review Board is to provide ethical and regulatory oversight of research that involves human subjects.

  • Library & Information Services Branch

    The NIEHS Library & Information Services Branch (LISB) plays a vital role within the NIEHS research community by managing information and knowledge about environmental health.

  • Nanotechnology Notable Papers and Advances

    The Nanotechnology Notable Papers and Advances is a searchable list of NIEHS-funded Nanotechnology publications.

  • Publication Images

    Publication Images: The Good, the Bad and the Impossible(1MB): Photomicrographic images that are submitted to Toxicologic Pathology for the purpose of documenting scientific findings range in quality from the good and the bad, to the impossible.

  • Diseases and the Environment

    The Toxicology and Environmental Health Information Program (TEHIP) maintains a comprehensive web site that provides access to resources produced by it and by other government agencies and organizations: Diseases and the Environment . This web site includes links to databases, bibliographies, tutorials, and other scientific and consumer-oriented resources.

  • Research Highlights

    The vision of the NIEHS is to use environmental health sciences to understand human disease and improve human health.. On this page you will find some Research Highlights from NIEHS scientists since its founding in 1966.

Studies, Symposia and Research

Applications, Databases and Software

  • Databases

    The Databases page contains items that are important tools in the field of environmental science, such as the Biomarkers of Oxidative Stress Study (BOSS), the Microarray Center cDNA Clone Search and more.

  • Digitized Atlas of Mouse Liver Lesions

    The Digitized Atlas of Mouse Liver Lesions page contains both search by subject and search by pathology.

  • NTP Data Downloads

    Have you ever wanted to combine NTP study data with your research? With the NTP Data Downloads web page  , you can bring NTP data to your desktop by downloading a few files. Summary data on all NTP chemicals can be downloaded in a single file. If you would like more detailed data, you can download an individual study type. Currently, CHO Cell Cytogenesis, Drosophila, Micronucleus, Mouse Lymphoma, Rodent Cytogenetics, and Salmonella study types are the study types available for detailed data downloads

  • NTP Nonneoplastic Lesion Atlas

    The National Toxicology Program (NTP) is pleased to bring to you a new searchable, web-based resource containing thousands of high quality images and guidelines for diagnosis of nonneoplastic lesions in experimental rodent models  . The Atlas will be used by NTP and its many pathology partners to standardize rat and mouse lesion diagnosis, terminology and the way lesions are recorded. This is a must-have resource for every pathologist.

  • Protocols

    The Special Techniques Group offers a variety of technical services to NIEHS researchers, including Digital Imaging/Analysis, Laser Microdissection, Mouse Phenotyping (Embryonic Lethality) and Specialized Necropsy Techniques.

  • Software

    NIEHS Software ("/Rhythmyx/assembler/render?sys_contentid=35926&sys_revision=4&sys_variantid=1169&sys_context=0&sys_authtype=0&sys_siteid=&sys_folderid=" sys_dependentvariantid="1169" sys_dependentid="35926" inlinetype="rxhyperlink" rxinlineslot="103" sys_dependentid="35926" sys_siteid="" sys_folderid="") was written by scientists within the Institute and is available to the public at no cost.


    Electron Paramagnetic Resonance/Electron Spin Resonance (EPR/ESR), is a sophisticated spectroscopic technique that detects free radicals in chemical and biological systems. This page is a resource for scientists studying the involvement of free radicals in pathological disease.

  • Household Products

    The Household Products Database  provides essential health and safety information on multiple common household products.
