The laboratory infrastructure within FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition has minimal administrative support and little flexibility, according to an interim report on research review presented by an FDA Science Board subcommittee. "There's not as much of a support system within CFSAN," said subcommittee member Rhona Applebaum during the Feb. 22 Science Board meeting in Bethesda, Md.
