CANADA - To the applause of 800 delegates, Dr Rudolf Krska of the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU) was awarded the biennial B.R.A.I.N. award on the second day of the scientific conference hosted by BIOMIN in Vancouver, Canada.

The award selection committee cited his ongoing lifetime achievement as a research scientist working in the field of mycotoxin research, and a 20+ year track record working with the BIOMIN Research Center on numerous projects. Since 2013, Dr Krska is the most-cited author of scientific papers on the topic of mycotoxins in the past decade, according to data collected from Thompson Reuters.

He has supervised preeminent research leading to the development of a unique multi-toxin analytical method based on liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) for the detection and quantification of more than 400 fungal and bacterial metabolites –including all regulated mycotoxins– in various cereals, food and feed matrices.
