New Web Page Focuses on the Foods and Veterinary Medicine Program’s Science and Research to Support Food and Feed Safety
Scientific expertise and research are key foundations of the work conducted within FDA’s Foods and Veterinary Medicine (FVM) program. Human and animal food safety, animal health and nutritional science are primary drivers of FVM’s research efforts.
FDA has created a new web page that provides a central source of information for scientists and other stakeholders around the world interested in FVM’s research priorities, activities, reporting and tracking.
The page includes information about the Science and Research Steering Committee, an inter-center body that coordinates FVM’s science and research activities to maximize resources and impact and avoid duplication of effort. The work overseen by the SRSC encompasses a wide range of food and feed research objectives across the scientific disciplines of chemistry, microbiology, toxicology and nanotechnology.
