Tuesday 25 June 2002
The FSA held a seminar on Thursday 22 November 2001 to discuss the ongoing programme of research on Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSEs) in relation to its policy objectives and to take a forward look and identify any gaps in the research programme.
Presentations were made by research contractors, FSA personnel and invited scientists from the diagnostic industry.
This report summarises information from the presentations in addition to that outlined in the abstracts provided by the speakers together with points made in the discussion sessions.
An overview summary was provided by Mr Mike Attenborough of the Meat and Livestock Commission (MLC) and an assessment of the research in place, against the policy research requirements is made.
