This report summarizes the results of the eight GE3LS research projects that were reported at a national conference held in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada in August 2006. They focus on issues related to consumer responses to new food and bio-materials; assessment of the new Canadian regulations governing natural health products; issues of intellectual property arising from these technologies; and the status of new regulatory risk assessment tools being developed to ensure the safety of novel foods and food processes.
