“Conduct[s] leading-edge biochemical research studies and provide[s] training programs that strive to advance the quality of science used to address environmental and public health issues.” (http://www.ciit.org/AboutCIIT/About; accessed 9/26/02)

The CIIT Science Advisory Committee “plays a key role in ensuring the credibility of CIIT science.... The Committee also reviews the Institute’s performance in fulfilling the research objectives of the chemical industry.” Supported by the Chemical Manufacturers Association and by about three dozen major chemical companies. (1997 Annual Report)

“In 1999, the Board of Directors of the American Chemistry Council approved a Long-Range Research Initiative (LRI), which sponsors research on health and environmental effects of chemical use. In developing its research initiative, the American Chemistry Council formed an alliance with CIIT.... Through the LRI, support for CIIT is being enhanced and consolidated into sponsor-ship by the entire membership of nearly 200 companies of the American Chemistry Council.” (2000 Annual Report; accessed 9/26/02)
