The Gordon Research
Seminar on Mycotoxins and Phycotoxins is a unique forum for graduate students,
post-docs, and other early-career scientists with comparable levels of
experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge
meeting will focus on emerging and recurring issues associated with the
occurrence of fungal and algal toxins that affect population health. Topics
covered will include but are not limited to expanding mycotoxin/phycotoxin
distributions, their ecological/physiological significance, novel toxin
identification and detection methods, new insights into their toxicology, and
risk assessment and management. A panel of experienced investigators will lead
a discussion of common research concerns, critical career decisions, and
challenges associated with professions in academia, government, and industry.
The casual setting characteristic of a GRS and evening social event will
provide an ideal networking environment for both peers and mentors.
