President Nixon announced on January 27, 1971, the establishment of the National Center for Toxicological Research, to be administered by FDA. This facility had been part of the U. S. Army's Pine Bluff Arsenal, and under Food and Drug NCTR began a research program to study the effects of toxins on health and the environment. NCTR today functions as a major research arm to support FDA’s ability to make science-based decisions.
