  On October 28th, the 6th International Conference on Selenium in the Environment and Human Health opened in NWAFU. More than 200 experts, scholars and business representatives from 20 countries including China, the United States, the United Kingdom and Germany, conducted in-depth discussions and exchanges on the theme of selenium’ s multifaceted nature and its interactive impact on the environment and biological system.

  During the three-day meeting, 46 experts from home and abroad made conference reports and keynote reports. The main topics include the biogeochemical cycle of selenium, the cellular and molecular functions of selenium, the impact of selenium on human, animal and plant health, the bioaugmentation of selenium and the remediation of selenium pollution. The conference selected and distributed 103 articles from more than 140 latest papers published by CRC on selenium research around the world.

  At the conference, posters of international selenium research were set up for display, and the student special session was specially opened for nearly 60 graduate students at home and abroad, where 12 Chinese and international students took the stage to make reports. The excellent posters and oral reports of students were awarded by the conference.

  The International Conference on Selenium in the Environment and Human Health, organized by the International Society for Selenium Research, is held every two years to provide a platform for scientists from all disciplines in the field of selenium research and professionals in the environmental, human and biological fields to share the latest research findings, exchange research ideas, foster collaborative research program projects, and talent cultivation projects. It is believed that this conference has gathered the overwhelming majority of well-known experts on selenium research in the world. The scale of the conference, the number of sponsors, the number of graduate students and representatives of Chinese and foreign enterprises are the highest in history, with countries along the “Belt and Road” such as Thailand, Vietnam and Pakistan participating for the first time.
