CVM AND CFSAN JOINTLY SPONSOR FOOD SAFETY INITIATIVE RESEARCH CONFERENCE
FDA Veterinarian Newsletter January/February 2000 Volume XV, No I
On December 7-8, 1999, the Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) and the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) jointly sponsored a conference on extramural research projects funded under the Food Safety Initiative. The purpose of this conference was to (1) review and discuss progress made during the first year of the cooperative agreements, (2) provide for formal and informal discussions between principal investigators and project officers, and update scientists in CVM and CFSAN on current extramural research project activities. Attendance at the meeting was limited to FDA scientists and principal investigators from the organizations that received funding. The results of studies from this research will be made available to the public when the data is published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Descriptive summaries of these projects are available at http://www.foodsafety.gov.
