University of Minnesota Opens Supplement Safety Center

MINNEAPOLISThe University of Minnesotas College of Pharmacy established The Center for Dietary Supplement Safety, designed to collect, analyze and disseminate scientific information about dietary supplements.

According to the college, the center will serve as a clearinghouse for safety data on dietary supplement use, publish reports on product safety, develop a national supplement ingredient database, and promote dialog about dietary supplements among stakeholders including industry, the government and consumers.

The public is starved for information about dietary supplements and their safety, said Richard Kingston, Pharm.D., professor of pharmacy and director of the center. We want to provide data to answer questions in a more systematic and ongoing basis and provide dayto- day monitoring of safety issues associated with the use of dietary supplements.

Funding for the center will come through government grants as well as donations and contracts from the dietary supplement industry or other non-governmental organizations.
