CVMBS Professor Selected to Serve on Advisory Panel
Dr. Mo Salman, a Professor in the Department of Clinical Sciences and Director of the Animal Population Health Institute (APHI) at Colorado State University, has been selected to serve on a panel of scientific advisors to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
Dr. Salman began his three-year tenure June 1 as a member of the Panel on Animal Health and Welfare. The EFSA provides objective scientific advice on all matters with a direct or indirect impact on food and feed safety. It is an agency of the European Union, established in 2002 following a series of food-related crises including an outbreak if bovine spongiform encephalopathy and concerns of dioxin contamination in the food supply. The authority has a Scientific Committee and nine scientific Panels which advise the EFSA.
Dr. Salman is the only North American among the 191 scientists who are serving on the panels. A rigorous selection procedure was coordinated by EFSA scientists and reviewed by an external Evaluation Committee.
"I am very pleased that EFSA has been able to attract such highly qualified scientific experts for its Scientific Committee and Panels, which for the backbone of its work in providing scientific opinions and advice on matters related to food and feed safety," said Stuart Slorach, Chairman of the Board.
