Government Sponsored Research in OP's

The Government has funded a number of research projects into the effects in humans of exposure to organophosphates (OPs), in particular OP based sheep dips. In addition projects have also been funded into the research of alternatives to OPs. This research forms a key part of the Government's Four Point Plan on OPs, announced in December 1999. Further details on the OP related R&D studies, both completed and ongoing can be found under projetcs completed and projects current.

If you have any queries or require further information regarding these R&D projects please feel free to contact Dr Jack Kay on 01932 338323 or j.kay@vmd.defra.gsi.gov.uk

The Central Science Laboratory holds a comprehensive database of Government research programmes.
