View Our 2018 Annual Report

We are pleased to share the ILSI Research Foundation’s 2018 Annual Report . Learn more about our commitment to high quality, scientific collaborations with partners around the world, from the co-organization of a scientific symposium on protected agriculture with the World Bank’s Food and Agriculture Global Practice, to the publication of the OECD Consensus Document on the Biology of Mosquito Aedes aegypti —the first insect species to be the subject of an OECD biology document. It has been a busy year for our team and in-country partners, and we are committed to continuing this in 2019.

2019 Recipients Announced for the Malaspina International Scholars Travel (MIST) Award

The scientists who provide their time and expertise to ILSI’s research, capacity building, and outreach programs are integral to the organization’s success, and ILSI is committed to supporting the scientific community and encouraging collaborative opportunities. One of the ways ILSI pursues this mission is by providing travel support to early career scientists so they can attend ILSI’s Annual Meeting and the ILSI Science Symposium, where they will present their work and network with researchers from around the world.
