JIFSAN Has Moved to the Patapsco Building at M-Square

The Joint Institute for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (JIFSAN) office has moved to the Patapsco Building at M Square, Maryland's largest research park. This location ideally situates JIFSAN adjacent to the FDA CFSAN Harvey Wiley Building, within walking distance from the College Park Metro (Washington's subway and bus transit system) and is less than two miles from the University of Maryland's (UM) main campus. M Square focuses on key technology clusters, including homeland and national security, environment and earth sciences, weather prediction and global climate change, and food safety and security.

JIFSAN's move to M Square provides many opportunities to promote leveraging says Dr. Jianghong Meng, Interim Director JIFSAN. "The move to M Square increases JIFSAN's ability to develop external partnerships to support our expanding international outreach programs and our Food Safety Risk Analysis Program." Additionally, Dr. Meng said that "This marks a pivotal point in JIFSAN's programs as it moves forward and builds on its achievements; and it will further enhance JIFSAN's ability to build collaborative partnerships with the UM faculty and FDA Scientists."
