Chapter 5 examines scientists’ efforts to facilitate the diffusion of a specific molecular practice-toxicogenomics-from the laboratories of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the NIEHS to the regulatory review protocols of the EPA. It demonstrates that the efforts of scientists, bioethicists, lawyers, and policymakers to anticipate and address the requirements of environmental risk assessment at the EPA have been an intrinsic part of the development of the science itself. It also describes the emergence of new initiatives, such as Tox21, a collaboration between the National Institutes of Health and the Environmental Protection Agency

Keywords:   toxicogenomics, diffusion, institutions, regulatory science, molecularization, NIH, EPA, Tox21
