IARC - INTERNATIONAL AGENCY FOR RESEARCH ON CANCER ITER ITER is a free Internet database of human health risk values and cancer classifications for over 680 chemicals of environmental concern from multiple organizations worldwide. ITER is the only database that presents risk data in a tabular format for easy comparison, along with a synopsis explaining differences in data and a link to each organization for more information. Search Original ITER Search ITER on TOXNET ITER is currently available at its "Original ITER" location ( and is also available as part of the TOXNET compilation of databases ( The Risk Information Exchange (RiskIE) is a companion database to ITER. RiskIE is a database of notifications about a variety of human health risk assessment projects that are underway or recently completed.

Travel.State.Gov TERA DOE Research and Development Accomplishments The Genes Have It! March 2016 is the 30th anniversary of the Santa Fe Workshop, which brought together participants from government, academia, and the private sector to explore the possibility of sequencing the human genome. This Workshop was sponsored by DOE and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). It met the goal of Charles DeLisi, then Associate Director of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Health and Environmental Research (OHER), by laying out an approach to sequence the human genome. The Human Genome Project (HGP) was formalized in mid-February 1990. More Information Featured Scientist Courtesy of Northwestern University Welcome to the Department of Energy (DOE) Research and Development (R&D) Accomplishments, a central forum for information about the outcomes of past DOE R&D that have had significant economic impact, have improved people's lives, orhave been widely recognized as remarkable advances in science.

Allergy and Infectious Diseases The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) conducts and supports basic and applied research to better understand, treat, and ultimately prevent infectious, immunologic, and allergic diseases. For more than 60 years, NIAID research has led to new therapies, vaccines, diagnostic tests, and other technologies that have improved the health of millions of people in the United States and around the world. NIAID is one of the 27 Institutes and Centers of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Since 1984, Dr. Fauci has been the director of NIAID, where he oversees an extensive research portfolio of basic and applied research to prevent, diagnose, and treat infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases, influenza, tuberculosis, malaria, and illness from potential agents of bioterrorism. Scientific Jobs Fellowship and Training Postdocs can browse current NIAID Postdoctoral Fellowship openings and apply to open positions online.

NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards (NPG) The NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards is intended as a source of general industrial hygiene information on several hundred chemicals/classes for workers, employers, and occupational health professionals. The NIOSH Pocket Guide does not contain an analysis of all pertinent data, rather it presents key information and data in abbreviated or tabular form for chemicals or substance groupings (e.g. cyanides, fluorides, manganese compounds) that are found in the work environment. The information found in the NIOSH Pocket Guide should help users recognize and control occupational chemical hazards. Search the NIOSH Pocket Guide Enter search terms separated by spaces. Download the NIOSH Pocket Guide Download the NIOSH Pocket Guide CD-ROM as an ISO image file and create a disc with CD-ROM authoring software.

Chemical Reactivity Worksheet (CRW) | Planning for Environmental The Chemical Reactivity Worksheet (CRW) is a free software program you can use to find out about the chemical reactivity of thousands of common hazardous chemicals. Download the Chemical Reactivity Worksheet for Windows, Mac, or iPad. Reactivity is the tendency of substances to undergo chemical change, which can result in hazards—such as heat generation or toxic gas byproducts. The CRW predicts possible hazards from mixing chemicals and is designed to be used by emergency responders and planners, as well as the chemical industry, to help prevent dangerous chemical incidents. The chemical datasheets in the CRW database contain information about the intrinsic hazards of each chemical and about whether a chemical reacts with air, water, or other materials. It also includes case histories on specific chemical incidents, with references. The Compatibility Chart shows the predicted hazards of mixing the chemicals in a mixture in an easy-to-use graphical interface.
