Food & Agriculture Biosecurity Initiative announced by incoming executive dean at Rutgers

ehouse of current science and gaps in knowledge on plant and animal disease agents, potential foodborne pathogens, recombinant infectious agents and vaccines. It would work with government and industry to establish standards and best practices for prevention and rapid communication systems for identification and warning of food system threats.

Cook/NJAES is collaborating with the Rutgers Food Policy Institute, The Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute (EOHSI), The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ), the W. K. Kellogg Foundations Mid-Atlantic Consortium, and other units within Rutgers and other colleges and universities in efforts to mount preemptive and responsive strategies for food system terrorism. Class A pathogens are not limited to human disease agents like smallpox or anthrax. Our food system is just as vulnerable to biological warfare, said Dr. Drew Harris of UMDNJ.

This initiative, being administered through the Food Policy Institute, follows the recommendations of the February 2002 workshop on this topic sponsored by Cook College/NJAES, UMDNJ and the MAC.
