Toxicology Consultant Services

The goals of this project are to facilitate greater interaction between the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the toxicology community, to raise awareness of traffic safety issues, and to increase NHTSA’s knowledge in the area of alcohol- and drug-impaired driving. In support of these goals, NHTSA has contracted for a staff of toxicologists to (a) aid in understanding, studying, and addressing issues related to chemical testing and the impairing effects of drugs and (b) network with colleagues in the forensic toxicology, criminology and medical communities to encourage more interest and activity on traffic safety. NHTSA expects the toxicologists to assist in four areas: (1) Provide technical assistance with data collection to NHTSA's Fatality Analysis Reporting System on cases involving alcohol and other drugs; (2) Collaborate with NHTSA to developing training information and materials; (3) Work with NHTSA to develop, prepare, and review communication, presentation, and outreach materials; and (4) Assist NHTSA with identifying research opportunities as well as coordinating and summarizing research activities.
