The International Symposium of Mycotoxicology in Kagawa 2003 in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Deoxynivalenol (DON) discovery at Kagawa University will be hosted jointly by Kagawa University and Japanese Association of Mycotoxicology.


Currently, international organization such as FAO and WHO show strong action for the risk assessment of mycotoxins and Japanese government has set up the tentative guideline level (1.1 ppm) for DON in wheat. Corresponding to these situations, this International Symposium will highlight the following topics; current situation of mycotoxin regulation, mycotoxin contamination in Asian countries, genetic approaches to the mycotoxin control, toxicology of mycotoxins, and analytical methods of mycotoxins.


On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to welcome all of you and I hope that you will enjoy the scientific program  which reflect a broad spectrum of disciplines, covering methods of analysis and sampling, toxicity, chemistry, biochemistry, biomonitoring, prevention, risk assessment, mycology and natural occurrence.


We will gather at a pleasant setting in Takamatsu City of Kagawa Prefecture well known with its ‘Sanuki Udon’. Kagawa Prefecture is situated in the north east of Shikoku which is in south west Japan. Kagawa has many sightseeing spots which are blessed with rich nature and long history.
