The Foodborne Toxin Detection and Prevention Research Unit conducts research to enhance food safety and biosecurity by developing new methods for analysis of toxins and bacteria in foods, and new strategies to reduce or eliminate mycotoxin contamination of agricultural commodities (especially tree nuts and figs). We validate these technologies and transfer knowledge to the scientific community, the food industry, and regulatory agencies responsible for the safety of the U.S. food supply.
