Institutes & Centers

Built upon an integrated systems biology platform, the two flagship institutes at The Hamner, the Institute for Chemical Safety Sciences (ICSS) and the Hamner-UNC Institute for Drug Safety Sciences (IDSS), develop and validate cutting-edge 21st century tools for safety assessment. Centers of Excellence in computational biology and bioinformatics, and human health assessment, support these Institutes and their goals. The Hamner has also developed extensive resources to provide sponsored research services in the preclinical toxicity space, as well as support and services to the research programs aligned with its Institutes and Centers.
