UCD Select Agents and Toxins Program

Program Overview

Select Agents and Toxins are those biological agents and toxins that have the potential to pose a severe threat to public health and safety, animal health or to animal products.  Select Agents and Toxins are regulated by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) via the Animal Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).

The current list of all Select Agents can be found on the National Select Agents Registry website:
