The Head-of-Unit Hervé Guillou is assisted by a Deputy Head-of-Unit Muriel Mercier-Bonin and a Secretary General Yolande Ginestet (forming the CoDir).

The direction is backed by a scientific council (Dir-Sci), the Council of Unit (CdU) and the college of Team and Platform Leaders (CREP).

Eight Research teams benefit from both administrative support structures and three technological platforms (including 2 GenoToul IBIsA-labelled technological platforms).

A quality-in-research policy, as well as policies of risk prevention and personnel lifelong training are enforced at TOXALIM.

Thematic working groups ("Commissions") contribute to the smooth development of TOXALIM activities. These include:

  • Scientific Animation
  • Scientific Equipments
  • Computer ressources and network
  • Teaching and Training
  • Prospective (ToxAvenir)
