The Louvain Centre for Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology

The Louvain Centre for Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology (LTAP) was established in 2009 to conduct advanced research on the effects of xenobiotics on human health. It addresses both intended (applied pharmacology) and adverse health effects of chemicals (toxicology).

The centre integrates interdisciplinary expertise (clinical, analytical, experimental, epidemiological sciences) and is actively engaged in commissioned projects and research for European, national and regional government bodies, major companies, trade associations, etc.

LTAP combines wide experience in research and publishing with youthful flair and imagination. We published 244 papers between 2011 and 2015 (44 of which in journals with an impact factor >5). Over the same period, research expenditures reached 3.225.000 euros.

LTAP is part of the Institute of Experimental and Clinical Research (IREC) and is located on the UCL campus in Brussels :
