Workshop on Safety Assessment of Foods and Feeds Derived from Genetically Engineered Plants
On March 5-7, 2018 in Langfang, China, the ILSI Research Foundation will be conducting the first phase of our
Technical Training Program on Safety Assessment of Foods and Feeds Derived from Genetically Engineered (GE) Plants
, in collaboration with ILSI Focal Point in China. Aimed at providing Chinese public-sector scientists with in-depth information about the purpose, design, and conduct of studies used to inform safety assessments of foods and feeds derived from GE crops, Phase I of the program will establish a baseline understanding of the food safety assessment paradigm, toxicity and allergenicity testing, compositional assessment, and animal testing. Planned for June 2019, Phase II of the training will include laboratory tours and demonstrations of how tests are managed and conducted, as well as how data are collected and interpreted.
