The MRC Toxicology Unit mission is to deliver mechanistic toxicology research, with a particular focus on the study of the links between exposure to chemicals, radiation and therapeutic agents including new classes of biologics, molecular initiating events, and adverse outcome pathways.

Based in the recently refurbished Gleeson Building, on the Old Addenbrookes Site in central Cambridge, they host 10 research programmes, who use a range of systems-based approaches to address key questions and continue to develop the translation of their basic research into clinically and public health-relevant outcomes.
