The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Safety is accepting applications from researchers at Minority Serving Institutions and especially early career faculty and researchers who haven’t yet gained much experience in global development projects.

The lab’s goal is to reduce the burden of food-borne illness in Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean. Researchers from a wide range of disciplines are eligible for this opportunity, including but not limited to food science, food processing, agribusiness, agricultural economics, agricultural education, animal science, family and consumer sciences, gender studies, microbiology, epidemiology, public health, human nutrition, and international relations and affairs.

Projects must be led by a researcher at a Minority Serving Institution (MSI), but project teams may include non-MSIs and other organizations as collaborators. To apply, go to the lab’s website.

Researchers at a non-MSI in the U.S. or at an institution outside the U.S. who are interested in partnering with an MSI on a research proposal may complete this optional interest form.

The lab will host an informational webinar on April 29.
