5th International Symposium on Mycotoxins and Toxigenic Moulds: Challenges and Perspectives, Ghent, Belgium
11th of May 2016
Dear colleagues and friends,
The MYTOX association research platform MYTOX “Mycotoxins and Toxigenic Moulds” was established in 2007 and consists of more than 50 researchers from 12 research laboratories in the Ghent University Association. MYTOX deals with mycotoxin research in a multi-disciplinary way based on four main units: (1) mycotoxins; (2) toxigenic moulds; (3) mycotoxins and animal health and (4) mycotoxins and human health.
We would like to welcome you at the 5th edition of the MYTOX International Symposium, which will be held in Ghent, Belgium, May 11, 2016. Many new developments in mycotoxin and toxigenic mould research have been realised and we would like to share these with you. The programme includes oral and poster presentations related to fungal-related disease monitoring; mycotoxin analysis in food, feed as well as in animal and human biological samples; prevention on the field; management strategies during food and feed storage and processing.
The symposium welcomes participants from industry, government as well as academia. Only through multidisciplinary efforts and concerted actions, further progress and solutions can be expected for the mycotoxin problem.
As the congress venue we have selected the NH Hotel Gent Belfort, which is located within the medieval historical centre of the city of Ghent and can be reached within 10 minutes using public transportation from the station.
We look forward to meeting you in Ghent!
Prof. Sarah De Saeger
