5th Annual Conference/ Workshop “NSPRI 2010” Mycotoxin Management in Agriculture - Nigeria

Nigeria Mycotoxin Awareness and Study Network (NMASN) - 1st announcement and call for papers

April 26 - 28, 2010 at Nigeria Stored Products Research Institute, Ilorin, Nigeria

The Nigeria Mycotoxin Awareness and Study Network (NMASN) is a body of scientists in the academia, industry, government regulatory agencies, farmers and other stakeholders in the food and feed sectors united by the need to create awareness on mycotoxins. A Non-Governmental, Non-Political and Non-Profit-making scientific organization founded in 2006 by a group of Scientists, NMASN seeks to improve the living conditions of humanity, through increased support and promotion of studies on mycotoxins.

The network currently operates from National Agency for Foods Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) office in Lagos, Nigeria with members across the country in tertiary and research institutions, pharmaceutical companies, regulatory agencies, manufacturing and other related industries.

The network has organized and held four conferences since inauguration with support from regulatory agencies like SON and NAFDAC, food/feed industries and service providers like Biomin, Katchey, Neogen and Vicam. Other international bodies like the International Society for Mycotoxicology and MycoRed are expected to collaborate in future initiatives directed at reducing mycotoxin contamination in agricultural products. The previous conferences have provided massive data on occurrence and significance of food-borne mycotoxins in Nigeria. NSPRI 2010 will therefore focus on strategies for mycotoxin management in agriculture and agricultural products. Papers reporting experiences and experiments in the area of control interventions will be given priority. Details of the 3rd NMASN workshop which will take place during NSPRI 2010 will be provided soon.
