Join us!

The ILSI Annual Meeting is a premiere gathering of scientists from around the world. The primary focus of the meeting is to learn about new nutrition and food safety science and identify areas where ILSI can have an impact on public health. This multidisciplinary meeting is an opportunity for experts from all sectors to collaborate and share knowledge. Join us for:

Scientific Sessions

Keynote Lectures

Networking Events

Branch Meetings

Scientific Program

Health-Based Decision Making

Advances in Health Based Decision Making

Monday, 22 January 2018
8:00 am – 10:00 am
Coordinated by ILSI North America

The purpose of this session is to educate the audience about the value of health-based assessments in decision-making in comparison with endpoint or hazard-based determinations. Examples discussed will provide insights into criteria that can frame the uncertainties of risk assessment and reduce the ambiguity of conclusions. This may be an opportunity to contribute in promoting appropriate evidence-based assessment methodologies to inform pronouncements on health and safety. This session will address advances in evidence-based risk assessment in toxicology and nutrition and weigh the accommodation of uncertainty in decisions pertinent to safety and health.

Welcome from Scientific Program Planning Committee
Stephen Crozier, PhD, The Hershey Company, CHAIR and John Sievenpiper, MD, PhD, FRCPC, University of Toronto, VICE CHAIR

Welcome and Introductions
Session Co-Chairs: Patricia Williamson, PhD, Cargill and Michael Batz, FDA (invited)

Advancing evidence-based risk assessment over hazard-based assessment; history; scientific best practices; fundamentals applicable to risk assessment – regardless of toxicology or nutrition endpoint; uncertainty or ambiguity
Joe Rodricks, PhD, Ramboll Environ

Assessment methodologies that “improve” understanding of uncertainties in risk and safety assessment of chemicals in food

Why Attend?

ILSI’s mission is to provide science that improves human health and well-being and safeguards the environment. In this digital age, you may be asking – why should I attend ILSI’s 2018 Annual Meeting in Bermuda. Frankly, there is no substitute for a live, in-person ILSI meeting that engages academic, government, and industry scientists. The 2018 ILSI Annual Meeting in Bermuda provides you with:

Learning Opportunities
You will learn about the latest research in personalized nutrition, food and water safety, sustainability, and risk assessment. The scientific program at the Annual Meeting is relevant for all experts in the food safety and nutrition community.

Perspective
Attending the ILSI Annual Meeting can help you take a step back and look at challenges in nutrition, food safety, and health through the viewpoint of colleagues that you don't engage with normally.

Leadership
By attending Annual Meeting you have the ability to draw attention to challenges that not everyone is aware of.  This is your chance to connect with other experts and take a leadership role while using the resources and network provided by the unique ILSI platform.
