The Manganese Health Research Program (MHRP) initiated by the International Manganese Institute (IMnI) in 2003 resulted in US government funding of over $5 million of research into the health effects and toxicology of manganese-based substances.

The MHRP produced 20 studies, over 150 published peer-reviewed articles, abstracts and presentations involving over 100 scientists worldwide. Findings were presented at the MHRP showcase conference – “New Discoveries-New Directions”, in June 2009. Although the program came to an end in 2010, scientists involved continue to publish new findings, so enhancing the understanding of manganese toxicology.
