 ABOUT THE ILSI RESEARCH FOUNDATION

 
The ILSI Research Foundation was formed in 1984 to create a philanthropic vehicle for ILSI to support original research.  Its Board of Trustees—from public and private entities around the world—guide the Foundation in its mission to deliver ground-breaking, impartial, and useful science.

 BROWSE OUR RECENT PUBLICATIONS

 
A Review of the Environmental Safety of the Cry3Bb1 Protein
Monograph 2014
​This document provides a comprehensive review of the information and data relevant to the environmental risk assessment of Cry3Bb1, a protein encoded by a gene isolated from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), and it presents a summary statement about the environmental safety of this protein when produced in genetically engineered (GE) maize (Zea mays) plants.
 
Does Increased Prescribed Exercise Alter Non-Exercise Physical Activity/Energy Expenditure in Health Adults? A Systematic Review
Journal Article 2014
​Prescribed physical activity/exercise training may reduce non-exercise physical activity resulting in no change in total daily energy expenditure and no or minimal exercise-induced weight loss.
 
Measurement of Nanomaterials in Foods: Integrative Consideration of Challenges and Future Prospects
Journal Article 2014
​The risks and benefits of nanomaterials in foods and food contact materials receive conflicting international attention across expert stakeholder groups as well as in news media coverage and published research.
 
Surrogate Species Selection for Assessing Potential Adverse Environmental Impacts of Genetically Engineered Insect-Resistant Plants on Non-Target Organisms
Journal Article 2014
​Most regulatory authorities require that developers of genetically engineered insect-resistant (GEI R) crops evaluate the potential for these crops to have adverse impacts on valued non-target organisms (NTOs), i.e., organisms not intended to be controlled by the trait.
 
Transportability of Confined Field Trial Data for Environmental Risk Assessment of Genetically Engineered Plants: A Conceptual Framework
Journal Article 2014
It is commonly held that confined field trials (CFTs) used to evaluate the potential adverse environmental impacts of a genetically engineered (GE) plant should be conducted in each country where cultivation is intended, even when relevant and potentially sufficient data are already available from studies conducted elsewhere.
 
A Review of the Environmental Safety of the Cry1F Protein
Journal Article 2013
This document provides a comprehensive review of the information and data relevant to the environmental risk assessment of Cry1F, a family of proteins encoded by genes isolated from acillus thuringiensis (Bt), and it presents a summary statement about the environmental safety of these proteins when produced in genetically engineered (GE) cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) and maize (Zea mays) plants.
 
A Review of the Environmental Safety of the Cry2Ab Protein
Journal Article 2013
This document provides a comprehensive review of the information and data relevant to the environmental risk assessment of Cry2Ab, a protein encoded by genes isolated from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt).
 
A Review of the Environmental Safety of the Cry34Ab1 and Cry35Ab1 Proteins
Report/White Paper 2013
​This document provides a comprehensive review of the information and data relevant to the environmental risk assessment of two proteins encoded by genes isolated from Bacillus thuringiensis, Cry 34Ab1 and Cry35Ab1, and presents a summary statement about the environmental safety of these proteins when produced in the genetically engineered (GE) maize event DAS-59122-7 (Zea mays, L.).
 
Climate Adaptation Imperatives: Global Sustainability Trends and Eco-Efficiency Metrics in Four Major Crops – Canola, Cotton, Maize, and Soybeans
Journal Article 2013
​Supplying our world’s growing nutrition needs in more sustainable ways has become an urgent global imperative, given the constraints of finite resources and the challenges of accelerating climate change.
 
Do Short Physical Activity Breaks in Classrooms Work?
Report/White Paper 2013
A Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Research Brief finds short physical activity breaks during the school day may improve student behavior and on-task behavior, and improve some measures of health. ILSI Research Foundation's TAKE10! is mentioned as an school intervention program that helps!
