2nd African Symposium on Mycotoxicology

It is with great pleasure to announce the 2nd African Symposium on Mycotoxicology entitled “Mitigating mycotoxin contamination in the African food and feed chain”, hosted by Dr. Bradley Flett and Dr. Sheila Okoth. This event will be organized in Mombasa (Kenya) from 24th to 27th June 2018, and will be held under the auspices of the International Society on Mycotoxicology (ISM, Dr. Rudi Krska & Dr. Antonio Moretti (president & vice-president ISM)).

The 1st African Symposium on Mycotoxicology held in 2015 in Zambia caused the willing to organize this 2nd symposium with the effort to address the threat of mycotoxins to food production systems, health care and trade on the African continent. MYTOX-SOUTH will take actively part in this symposium by organizing a special MYTOX-SOUTH session (evening 25/06/2018). Short-talks on “EU perspective on collaboration with Africa”, “African perspective on collaboration with EU” and “Funding opportunities” will be executed by MYTOX-SOUTH. Moreover, three excellent cases of results dissemination through collaboration between North and South partners will be presented: Zimbabwe, Malawi and Nigeria. MYTOX-SOUTH encourages all mycotoxin researchers to attend the 2nd African Symposium on Mycotoxicology.

See you in Kenya!
