Kelly Coleman (PhD, DABT, RAC) is a:  Board Certified Toxicologist, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Toxicology at the University of Minnesota, Bakken Fellow, European Registered Toxicologist, and is employed as the “Distinguished Toxicologist Technical Fellow” at Medtronic.  Recently he shared with me a directory he developed of free Toxicology resources.  Kelly said –
“Dave, attached is a copy of a list of free toxicology databases that I’ve put together over the years.  The biggest problem being a toxicologist is finding good tox data on chemicals, that’s why I put the list together.  I hope your visitors can benefit from it.”
