EFSA welcomes 150 to summer school

Around 150 scientists from 16 countries visited EFSA last week for a one-day summer school on “In Silico/In Vitro Approaches for Food Science”. A group of international experts introduced participants, mainly young researchers, to new aspects of this expanding field, including how to use modelling systems to simulate the behaviour of food molecules and how to combine in silico and in vitro data to investigate the mode/mechanism of action within a ligand-protein interaction. The summer school was organised by the University of Parma in collaboration with EFSA, Istituto Superiore di Sanità, the University of Barcelona, Virginia Commonwealth University and Istituto Mario Negri.
