Response to the House of Commons Science and Technology Select Committee into scientific advice and evidence in emergencies

13 September 2010

The response builds on the Society’s contribution of expertise and evidence, through our policy reports and our Fellows, to a number of policy issues. In addition to advising strategically on emerging issues such as food security, population and neuroscience, the Society has conducted a number of formal reviews of unpredictable policy challenges, including pandemic flu and Foot and Mouth Disease.
