MRC Toxicology Unit

The Medical Research Council (MRC) Toxicology Unit seeks to deliver field-changing mechanistic insights into toxicology and disease. Using unbiased systems biology approaches, the Unit researches the effects that occur following cellular exposure to chemicals, radiation and external biological agents. The Unit, directed by Professor Anne Willis, aims to develop new models better able to predict the molecular mechanisms of diseases associated with toxic exposure that will provide insights leading to novel treatments for disease. The Unit interacts closely with industry and regulatory stakeholders.
