CPAS Deputy Director Dr Rod Lamberts has been made a Fellow of Food Standards Australia and New Zealand.
The FSANZ Fellows program was developed to create a network of experts who can provide FSANZ with objective expert advice and critical review. The program also helps to develop academic links and networks. Established in 2000, the program has been valuable to the scientific work of the agency.
FSANZ Fellows provide expert advice on applications, proposals and other risk assessment activities of the agency. FSANZ Fellows, within their relevant areas of expertise, also peer review FSANZ work and provide training to FSANZ staff.
Dr Lamberts was an invited speaker at the New Zealand Food Safety Lecture Series 2019 in Wellington in October on science communication, risk and controversial science, and at the Australian Society for Medical Research Early Career Researcher development forum in Sydney in September.
