Annual ‘ROS’ Workshop

The IMGC hosts its annual workshop named ‘ROS’ (roll up one’s sleeves) that focuses on the translational issues in milk science and lactation, identifies key hurdles to scientific development and recruits innovative solutions from a broad range of scientific disciplines.

The first two hours of the workshop are dedicated to oral presentations followed by an one hour interactive panel discussion with the virtual audience. The goal of this virtual webinar is for participants to come away with a better understanding of bringing the discoveries of science to practice as concepts and products for human health.

This year's theme:

Milk Proteins and Peptides: Challenges and Successes in Scalability, Analytics and Navigating Regulatory

Join six world experts in milk science as they share the challenges and solutions for overcoming those challenges in scaling up, analytics and navigating regulatory milk proteins and peptides. Participate in the discussion!
