Research commitment on moulds

FunTox is the name of a new scientific platform at the Norwegian Veterinary Institute. The platform is part of the Institute’s long-term commitment to excel within appointed areas, including moulds in a «One Health» perspective.

The Institute will dedicate 3.5 mill NOK yearly over five years (2014 - 2018) to research on fungi and mycotoxins and their interconnection to plant-, animal- and human health.

"You can find moulds everywhere and in many different forms," says Hege Divon, coordinator and leader of the platform.
