Louvain Centre for Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology


The Louvain Centre for Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology (LTAP) was established in 2009 to study the effects of xenobiotics on human health, including both beneficial effects of drugs (applied pharmacology) and adverse effects of pollutants (toxicology). The centre integrates expertise in clinical, analytical, experimental and epidemiological sciences. LTAP 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 200 papers since 2015. 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 :
