Inaugural Event Marks Official Opening of Institute for Food Safety and Health at IIT

An inaugural launch event will mark the National Center for Food Safety and Technology's (NCFST) transition to a principal operating center within the newly formed Institute for Food Safety and Health (IFSH) at Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT). The IFSH inaugural opening and tour will take place on Monday, April 11, from 10:00 am – noon at IIT's Moffett Campus in Bedford Park, IL. The reclassification of the long-time food safety, food defense and nutrition research center to institute status, approved by the IIT Executive Committee on December 8, 2010, better reflects the organization's expanded scope of research, expertise and new state-of-the-art facilities available to its food industry members and government partners.
