By collecting a wide range of multidisciplinary examples, the text identifies important areas of research while providing a resource for future group-building activities.

Topics covered include:

  • Food research safety teams

    This book encourages comprehensive research by recognizing significant early efforts and considers a range of food safety problems, research techniques, and solutions. The use of global examples and interdisciplinary team-based reports, along with information from the fields of academia, government, and industry, makes Interdisciplinary Food Safety Research an important resource for enhancing the safety of our food supply.
