About The Institute of Neurotoxicology and Neurological Disorders


The Institute of Neurotoxicology and Neurological Disorders (INND) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that has focused for the past twenty years on research and education about chemicals and toxic agents.

INND’s goal is to use innovative communication tools to distribute scientific information about the health and environmental impacts of toxic chemicals, thereby empowering the public and policy makers to make choices that create healthy communities and environments.

We put scientific information in the context of history, society, and culture.

If you'd like to make a donation to this work, we are always grateful for support in pursuing our mission to cultivate an informed public and a safe environment for all.
