"We are delighted to have Dr. Sinnott serve as vice chair of this strategic scientific advisory board," said Mark LeDoux, chairman, CRN board of directors.

"Serving in this role is a good opportunity to further influence industry issues such as validating safety, quality and beneficial effects of dietary supplements and functional foods. Active members of the SSAC represent many decades of scientific knowledge. It will be a great privilege to work with them and the scientific leadership of the CRN to address scientific and economic issues facing us at a national level."
