Capability Mapping (CapMap) Online Search Tool
The New Zealand Food Safety Science & Research Centre (NZFSSRC) has launched an exciting initiative to provide access to capability, resources and research projects on food safety. A searchable database is now available on the NZFSSRC website containing information for over 400 individuals, 18 organisations, 214 individual facilities, and more than 400 projects related to national food safety science and research.
The information is a valuable resource for anyone wanting to identify individuals and resources available to provide research and advice on food safety. The database will be maintained and regularly updated by the NZFSSRC.

STEC - Shiga toxin producing E. coli (STEC), is a nasty toxin producing bacteria, also known as VTEC (Verotoxin producing E. coli)
It spreads easily and is life threatening in one in ten cases. This type of E.coli is a relatively new illness to New Zealand with the first case in 1993. Taranaki has one of the highest rates of STEC and nearly 50% of cases end up in hospital. Children under five living on and around farms are most at risk.

NZFSSRC Annual Meeting 2017 - Video Presentations
It's not too late
If you missed the Centre's first national meeting in Nelson on 3 July, it's not too late to hear some of the informative, interesting and sometimes humorous, presentations by our international science advisory board members, and local industry, government and science contributors, including some brave students. We thank them for allowing us to post the videos of their presentations. We are very grateful to our special guests and colleagues from China, Professor Xianming Shi (Shanghai Jao-Tong University) and Professor Winston Duo Wu (Soochow University) for coming to this meeting and presenting to us in English.
