The International Life Sciences Institute
The International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) is a non-profit, worldwide foundation established in 1978 to advance the understanding of scientific issues relating to nutrition, food safety, toxicology, risk assessment, and the environment. By bringing together scientists from academia, government, industry, and the public sector, ILSI seeks a balanced approach to solving problems of common concern for the well-being of the general public.
ILSI Europe was established in 1986 to identify and evaluate scientific issues related to the above topics through symposia, workshops, expert groups, and resulting publications. The aim is to advance the understanding and resolution of scientific issues in these areas.
ILSI Europe is funded primarily by its industry members. For more information, visit Web site: http://europe.ilsi.org or contact: ILSI EUROPE, Avenue E Mounier, 83 Box 6, B-1200 Brussels, Belgium. Tel:+32 2 771 00 14; Fax:+32 2 762 00 44; E-mail: email@example.com
