9-12 April 2018
The 18th Annual Oxford International Conference on the Science of Botanicals (ICSB) was held on 9-12 April 2018 at The University of Mississippi.
The focus of the 18th Oxford ICSB meeting is to discuss approaches for post-market surveillance, risk, and safety assessment, quality control and adverse event reporting (AER) for botanical dietary supplements (BDS) and natural products, as well as regulatory aspects with perspectives from government, manufacturers and trade associations. To this end, the program will include relevant presentations from members of CFSAN/FDA, government officials, major trade associations and industry representatives discussing pressing topics that affect BDSs and their impact on consumers.
Our Director, Prof. Pang-Chui Shaw, was invited to give a presentation on the topic of “Authentication and Quality Control of Concentrated Herbal Medicine Granules by Molecular Technology”.
Two PhD students, Gavin and Tina, presented their posters at the conference and Tina got the Best Poster Award.
