Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Nutritious, sustainable, and secure agricultural supplies are important to meet global needs. Although there are broad efforts to ensure food is safe, many people still experience preventable foodborne illness. Mycotoxins are produced by fungi that occasionally contaminate agricultural commodities and pose health risks to consumers. Research will be presented on overcoming the limitations of popular methods to reduce mycotoxin exposure by using the fields of materials science, cheminformatics, and analytical chemistry.
