* HACCP (hazard analysis and critical control point) systems draw on science to identify potential food safety problems and prevent food-borne illnesses.  They have significant implications for the organization, operation and outcomes of the food and agriculture industry.

The Science and Policy Seminar Series seeks to

1) help ISU faculty and staff more effectively fulfill the land-grant mission by increasing understanding of the impact of science and scientists on the establishment of public policies and regulations

2) encourage and expand communication and collaboration between natural and social scientists

3) enhance the capacity university-wide for engaged citizenship

Funded by the Global Agricultural Science and Policy Initiative, through an endowment to the Agronomy Department.  Supporting ISU departments include: Agronomy, Botany, Economics, Plant Pathology, Political Science, Sociology and the Office of Biotechnology.
