Based on the overwhelming success at the first three International Conferences on Selenium in the Environment and Human Health held in 2009 (Suzhou, China), 2011 (Suzhou, China), and 2013 (Hefei, China), the 4th International Conference on Selenium in the Environment and Human Health will take place on 18-21 October 2015 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. This conference will again create an interdisciplinary atmosphere that connects research representing the multi-nature of selenium (Se) throughout the world. It is our continued intent to increase and expand our multi-faceted perspective on Se and evaluate its impact on environments and biological systems via an international and interdisciplinary vision.

Abstracts are welcomed for all aspects of Se research relevant to environment, animal and human health, and biochemical, nutritional and molecular processes. The conference program will include, but not limited to, nutrition, diet, human and animal health, disease, toxicity, environmental ecotoxicity, biochemistry, molecular biology, chemical analysis, speciation techniques, and modeling. Internationally-renown Se research experts will be invited to present their research findings on the following topics:
  • Soil Se variation and worldwide deficiency and contamination distribution;
  • Transport and fate of Se in the air-water-soil/sediment-plant and animal systems;
  • Phytomemediation & phytomanagement of Se-contaminated soils;
  • Understanding the role of Se in the physical and biological environment;
  • Biochemical, cellular, and physiological functions of Se in animal and human health;
  • Biotransformation of Se and techniques for Se speciation analysis;
  • Development and uses of Se-biofortified agricultural products;
  • Environmental Se pollution and control
  • Plant nutrition and plant physiology
  • Agronomic biofortification strategy, and roles in human and animal health
