8th Joint CSL/JIFSAN Symposium on Food Safety and Nutrition
Date: June 26 - 28, 2007 Location: Greenbelt Marriot, Greenbelt, MD The eighth in an on-going series of Joint Symposia on food safety and applied nutrition jointly organized by the Central Science Laboratory (CSL), UK and the Joint Institute for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (JIFSAN), University of Maryland, College Park. The Focus of the 2007 annual CSL/JIFSAN Joint Symposium on Food Safety and Nutrition is Nanotechnology in Foods and Cosmetics. Tentatively, symposium sessions will address the identification of regulatory issues, research approaches, characterization and detection methods, routes of exposure and toxicology, and risk analysis and decision making related to food and cosmetic applications of nanotechnology.
