Food Safety Research Information Office (FSRIO) Research Projects Database (RPD)

The Food Safety Research Information Office (FSRIO) was created by the Agricultural Research, Extension and Education Reform Act of 1998 and was formally launched on July 2, 2001. FSRIO was established to support the research community by collecting, organizing, and disseminating food safety information.

FSRIO's mission is to provide to the research community and the general public information on publicly funded, and to the maximum extent practicable, privately funded food safety research initiatives for the purpose of preventing unintended duplication of food safety research, and assisting the executive and legislative branches of the Federal Government and private research entities to assess food safety research needs and priorities. FSRIO works in cooperation with the National Institutes of Health, the Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, public institutions, and, on a voluntary basis, private research interests.

The Research Projects Database (RPD) provides current food safety research projects from both U.S. and international government, and non-government organizations. Users can search the full text of Active and Completed Projects, or browse by Category (Foodborne Disease; Microbial Contaminants; Policy and Planning; Microbial Toxins; Education and Training; Chemical Contaminants; Food Defense; Risk Assessment; Antimicrobial Resistance; Detection Methods), Commodity (Produce; Meat, Poultry, Game; Nuts, Seeds; Seafood; Dairy; Grains, Beans, Legumes; Eggs), or Funding Source (NIFA; FDA; ARS; NIAID; FSA; NSF; Euro Commiss; BBSRC; NCBA; NIEHS).
