About ILSI
ILSI is a nonprofit, worldwide organization whose mission is to improve public health and well-being.  It achieves this mission by fostering collaboration among experts from academia, government, and industry on conducting, gathering, summarizing, and disseminating science. Its activities focus primarily on nutrition and health promotion; food safety; risk assessment; and the environment.

ILSI was incorporated in 1978 to improve anticipation and response to scientific uncertainty. It was envisioned as an international body; one that would foster collaboration among industries and regulatory agencies to help ensure the safety and well-being of the public. Prominent researchers from industry and academia were to jointly lead the organization, guiding its work to generate data, harmonize the use of science, and encourage scientific dialogue.
