Center for Chemical Toxicology Research and Pharmacokinetics

The Cutaneous Pharmacology and Toxicology Center, located in the College of Veterinary Medicine at North Carolina State University, was chartered by the UNC Board of Governors on March 10, 1989 to "Perform scientific research on the structure and function of skin focused on transdermal drug delivery, cutaneous toxicology, metabolism and pharmacokinetics employing innovative animal models and other pharmacokinetic research." bucky ball This extensive research led to the creation, establishment and maintenance of the national USDA-supported Food Animal Residue Avoidance Databank (FARAD) in 1981 and the Food & Agriculture Organization-United Nations (FAO) supported global FARAD. FARAD performs the residue avoidance data analysis, and provides assistance to those who have a question about how to prevent residues in animal-derived food.The Center was renamed the Center for Chemical Toxicology Research and Pharmacokinetics (CCTRP) by UNC President Molly Broad on December 6, 2001 to officially reflect this dual mission. These two formal missions guide the nature of the research performed by the CCTRP and provide the necessary research base to support a rigorous graduate and post-graduate training program in comparative pharmacology, general toxicology and nanotechnology designed to produce health scientists for academia, industry and government.
