Adult food allergy workshop: 17 March

peanuts

The Food Standards Agency is hosting a workshop on adult food allergy at The Royal Society in London on Monday 17 March 2014. This event, which is co-sponsored by allergy interest group BSACI, is for researchers, clinicians and others working in the area of food allergy, and aims to discuss recent developments and current uncertainties.

It is anticipated that the workshop will provide a basis for identifying important questions that could be answered by a dedicated FSA research programme for adult allergy, possibly in association with other research funders.

The event will be chaired by Professor Ian Kimber, Programme Advisor to the FSA’s food allergy and intolerance research programme. Speakers at the event include President of BSACI, Professor Tony Frew, and leading experts in adult food allergy, Dr Stephen Till and Dr Isabel Skypala.

The workshop is free to attend and the FSA will provide refreshments and lunch on the day. We are unable to cover travel or accommodation costs.

If you are interested in attending and contributing to the discussions, please email Shuhana.Begum@foodstandards.gsi.gov.uk by Friday 24 January 2014 and your request for an invite will be considered. Please note, we expect this event to be popular and this means places will be limited to a maximum of two experts per organisation.
