Professor Angel Medina-Vaya (Cranfield University, UK) visited FABI researchers Prof. Cobus Visagie and Dr Neriman Yilmaz from 17–21 July. The visit formed part of a FLAIR Collaboration Initiation Grant funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund administered by the Royal Society. Angel presented a seminar titled 'Making fungi travel through time to predict future mycotoxin contamination in food commodities'. Discussions, amongst many other topics, were focused on establishing a collaborative effort and develop proposals to explore the effect interacting abiotic conditions have on mycotoxin production by fungal communities.
