Scope and Content Note

The North Carolina State University, College of Veterinary Medicine, Center for Chemical Toxicology Research and Pharmacokinetics contain laboratory and experiment log books documenting grants awarded to the Center for studies of Isolated Perfused Porcine Skin Flaps (IPPSF). These records also include two pieces of historic equipment used for these experiments, an Osborne computer for the Food Animal Residue Avoidance Databank (FARAD) and a pressure transducer. Materials range in date from 1981 to 2011.

Historical Note

The Cutaneous Pharmacology and Toxicology Center, located in the College of Veterinary Medicine, was chartered by the UNC Board of Governors on March 10, 1989 to "Perform scientific research on the structure and function of skin focused on transdermal drug delivery, cutaneous toxicology, metabolism and pharmacokinetics employing innovative animal models and other pharmacokinetic research." This extensive research led to the creation, establishment and maintenance of the national USDA-supported Food Animal Residue Avoidance Databank (FARAD) in 1981. FARAD was established to prevent or mitigate illegal or harmful residues of drugs, pesticides, biotoxins and other chemical agents that may contaminate foods of animal origin.The Center was renamed the Center for Chemical Toxicology Research and Pharmacokinetics (CCTRP) by UNC President Molly Broad on December 6, 2001 to officially reflect this dual mission. These two formal missions guide the nature of the research performed by the CCTRP and provide the necessary research base to support a rigorous graduate and post-graduate training program in comparative pharmacology, general toxicology and nanotechnology designed to produce health scientists for academia, industry and government.

The Center has been awarded numerous pretigious grants from agencies such as the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), and the Department of Defense to conduct experiments on porcine (pig) skin flaps, which have proven to apply to human skin as well. Many of these studies have been carried out by Dr. Jim Riviere, the co-founder and co-director of FARAD and the Director of the Center for Chemical Toxicology Research and Pharmacokinetics.
