Mold Research: NTP Studies

NTP is conducting numerous studies in rodents to identify potential harm from short-term and long-term exposure to select molds. These studies may provide toxicology data that can be used by other government agencies, the public, and other stakeholders in evaluating the safety of molds.

The tables below list ongoing NTP studies on molds with a link to the testing status page and any available reports or updates.
