AMIF Releases 2010-2011 Request for Pre-Proposals

Thursday, June 3, 2010

(American Meat Institute)

The American Meat Institute Foundation (AMIF) today released its 2010-2011 request for pre-proposals (RFP). 

AMIF invites pre-proposals on applied and fundamental research that will improve the control of microbial pathogens in meat and poultry products.  AMIF is soliciting pre-proposals on controlling Listeria monocytogenes on ready-to-eat (RTE) meat and poultry products, Escherichia coli O157:H7 in fresh beef products and Salmonella in meat and poultry products.  The priorities are listed by pathogen and are further categorized within each.

In a departure from previous priorities, AMIF has developed a Priority Focus category within each pathogen.  This category highlights the areas of greatest concern within a given pathogen research area.  Priority Focus replaces the previously defined Targeted Research area.  Research priorities that are outside of the scope of the three referenced pathogens are listed under Other Food Safety Research.

Pre-proposals are due by 5 p.m. EDT on Friday, July 30.  Further detail on pre-proposal submission and the complete RFP is available at http://amif.org/ht/a/GetDocumentAction/i/60024.
