Safety Assessment of Foods and Feeds Derived from Genetically Engineered Plants: Phase II Technical Workshop

Washington, DC and Ashland, OH, USA
June 17, 2019 – June 21, 2019

By Invitation Only. 

The ILSI Research Foundation, in collaboration with ILSI Focal Point in China, conducted the first phase of our Technical Training Program on Safety Assessment of Foods and Feeds Derived from Genetically Engineered (GE) Plants on March 5-7, 2019 in Langfang, 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 established a baseline understanding of the food safety assessment paradigm, toxicity and allergenicity testing, compositional assessment, and animal testing.

Phase II of the technical training, comprised of laboratory tours and demonstrations of how tests are managed and conducted, as well as how data are collected and interpreted, is scheduled to take place on July 17-21, 2019 in Washington, DC and Ashland, OH, USA. The training includes a review of the concepts from Phase I, with an additional focus on critical reading and review of study reports.

Participants are asked to complete the eLearning module “Application of Problem Formulation for Food and Feed Safety Assessment” in advance of the Phase II workshop.
