21–22 June 2018 Snakebite Conference - From Science to Society

Stadsgehoorzaal Breestraat 60, 2311 CS Leiden, The Netherlands

Naturalis and Leiden University organise a 2-day international conference ‘Venomous Snakes: from science to society’ to ask attention for a devastating, neglected tropical disease and ignite international action on snakebite prevention and treatment. By bringing together science, government, industry and societal & humanitarian aid organisations, we want to take the first steps in developing solutions for the issues concerning snakebites in the tropics.

A best paper award for the PhD students sponsored by Toxins will also be presented at the conference.

24–27 June 2018 2nd African Symposium on Mycotoxicology

Mombasa, Kenya

African Society of Mycotoxicology (ASM) welcomes you to the 2nd symposium which will be held in Mombasa, Kenya 24th - 27th June 2018. The meeting will bring together both regional and international participants to share experiences and technology in mycotoxin research, while at the same time identifying the way forward in mycotoxin management in Africa. You are welcome to be part of this worthy course.

16–18 September 2018 2nd Mycokey International Conference

Wuhan, China

This Conference, hosted jointly by Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS), Hubei Academy of Agricultural Sciences (HAAS) and Chinese Society of Plant Protection (CSPP) will involve a wide range of mycotoxin management topics covering the whole food and feed chain. Welcome both regional and international participants to share experiences and technology on mycotoxin management.

24–27 September 2018 The 4th Prato Conference on Pore Forming Proteins

Prato, Iataly

The 4th Prato Conference on Pore Forming Proteins will be held Monday 24th September to Thursday 27th September 2018 at the Monash University Prato Centre in Italy.

Come to Prato and explore the wonderful world of pore-forming toxins: Pore forming proteins (PFPs) are molecules that self-assemble from a soluble form into oligomeric membrane spanning pores. These molecules play diverse roles in processes such as immunity, bacterial pathogenicity, venom toxicity and developmental biology. From a translational perspective PFPs are also emerging as key molecules of utility in medical research, protection of agricultural crops from pests, DNA sequencing, and as tumour therapeutics.

The meeting will span a wide spectrum of research (both academic and industry focused) on Pore Forming Proteins from all kingdoms of life and across a range of different functions.

21–26 October 2018 The 18th International Conference on Harmful Algae

Nantes, France

The ICHA 2018 scientific program will foster discussions and hopes to inspire participants from a wide array of themes to initiate collaborations within and across disciplines for the advancement of our field. While major culprits of public safety problems (the genera Alexandrium, Dinophysis, Pseudo-nitzschia for marine systems or Anabaena, Aphanizomenon and Microcystis for freshwater systems) still continue to thrive in our waters, many advances have been made in monitoring for these species and their toxins. Still, as the environment and anthropogenic stressors continue to change, our coastal and freshwater systems also undergo heavy changes. Therefore, our ability to detect novel or emerging organisms and their toxins become of growing importance. It also becomes clearer that the societal impacts of Harmful Algae are multiple and do not simply concern fisheries and aquaculture but increasingly so other sectors, including tourism, shipping, desalination and renewable energy supply. Therefore, we felt it important to reiterate the need to translate fundamental science into knowledge to help overcome societal challenges. We have thus placed the conference under the theme “From Ecosystems to Socio-ecosystems”.
