Welcome to the
International Conference on Metal Detoxification

Athens 2019


It is a great pleasure to invite you to take part in the Internationational Conference on Metal Detoxification. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers in the fields of metal biology and medical geology to showcase the recent developments and address global challenges we face today within the field of metal toxicity. Hopes are that the conference will lead to fruitful collaborative projects that will bring the field forward and science closer to clinical practice. As a result of the information conveyed during the conference and what is known in the scientific literature we will aim to establishing reseach centers for detoxification in cooperation with existing clinics. A second aim is to inform the public about the burden of heavy metals from food, soil, water and air derived from natural sources or pollution. Read more
