FoBiG presents study at IAFP's 13th European Symposium on Food Safety

FoBiG’s staff member Jan Oltmanns will present the results of the first EFSA study on the identification of emerging chemical risks in the food chain at the 13th European Symposium on Food Safety of the International Association for Food Protection (IAFP; Brussels, 29-31 March 2017). The study was performed by FoBiG and Fraunhofer ITEM on behalf of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the results were published in 2016. The study will also be presented with posters by Fraunhofer ITEM at the 83rd Annual Meeting of the German Society for Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology (Heidelberg, 6-9 March 2017) and the 56th Annual Meeting of the Society of Toxicology (Baltimore, 12-16 March 2017). As already posted here, FoBiG and Fraunhofer ITEM are currently involved in a follow-up project on behalf of EFSA that extend the procedure tested on 100 substances to all substances registered under REACH.
