The Predictive Toxicology Branch (PTB) partners across the NIEHS Division of the National Toxicology Program (DNTP) to develop and apply innovative approaches to predict human-relevant health effects from agents of interest to DNTP. DNTP is a team-based scientific organization, and its mission is to improve public health through development of data and knowledge that are translatable, predictive, and timely.
Capabilities of the Branch include the development, validation, and application of computational tools, dose-response models, and systems toxicology models. The Branch serves as the DNTP lead for key partnerships such as the interagency Tox21 Program and the Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Validation of Alternative Methods (ICCVAM).
