Mycotoxin Prevention and Applied Microbiology (MPM)
Research Scientists in (MPM) perform research needed to enhance food safety and crop production in the U.S. and around the world. They conduct fundamental and applied research in genetics, microbiology, chemistry and plant biology to develop new microbial identification methods, mycotoxin control strategies, and toxin detection and analyses technologies. The impact of this research is recognizable through the development of novel approaches to limit mycotoxin contamination, control foodborne diseases, and improve crop production.
