Message from the President


It is no longer necessary to remember the danger of mycotoxins for both human health and the health of livestock. The carcinogenic effects of several mycotoxins, however is continuously highlighted by scientists all over the world.

Given this worrying fact, many countries have undertaken epidemiological studies to determine the real impact of these toxic substances on the prevalence of certain cancers. On the other hand, they sat up a risk management along with a control system.

The relevance of such a system should be based on clear regulations in order to set for the most dangerous mycotoxins, threshold limits not to be exceeded in different types of foodstuffs and feedstuffs. Powerful analytical methods should be developed within a network of accredited laboratories. This will ensure the reliability of the results of these analyses.

The Congress "Mycotoxins and Cancer" organized by the Moroccan Society of Mycotoxicology (MSM) will be an opportunity to discuss about all these issues with the participation of world-leaders in the field of mycotoxins.

The support of the Lalla Salma Foundation Against Cancer, the assistance of concerned UN agencies (FAO, WHO, etc.) and the International Society of Mycotoxicology (ISM), of which the MSM is a national branch, are all guarantees for the success of this scientific event.

One of the key objectives of this scientific meeting is to reach the awareness of the public authorities, economic operators and health personnel to the danger represented by these toxic metabolites.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the International Congress  Mycotoxins and Cancer,
I would be happy to welcome you to Marrakesh from 24th to 26th of march 2016.
In addition to the highly attractive scientific program, we will try to make your stay as pleasant as possible in Marrakesh, one of the most attractive cities in the world.
