GMO Workshop on allergenicity assessment

Wednesday, 16 June, 2021 (All day) to Thursday, 17 June, 2021 (All day)
The EFSA GMO Panel published a guidance document on allergenicity assessment of GM plants in 2017. The topics addressed were IgE- and non-IgE-mediated adverse immune reactions to foods and risk assessment. The aim of the workshop is to set the scene on the current state-of-the-art in the science of allergenicity assessment and to define what specific elements of such assessment need to be developed to move forward a field still in its infancy. The formulation of specific research requirements for allergenicity assessment and protein safety in general is urgently needed in a world that demands more sustainable food systems. The meeting is intended for all interested stakeholders with expertise in the area of allergenicity and protein safety assessment. A maximum of 80participants can be accommodated, including speakers and other experts already identified by EFSA.
