Paolo Cabras Best Poster Awards

Scientist Awards

The XIV Symposium in Pesticide Chemistry includes two Scientist Awards for best Posters.

The Paolo Cabras Best Poster Awards is established in memorial of Prof. Paolo Cabras (+2010) who was Professor of Food Chemistry (School of Pharmacy at University of Cagliari, Italy) and a driving force for the advancement of pesticide-food-environment problems at Italian and International level.

He founded GRIFA (Italian Research Group for Pesticides and the Environment) and as President he founded in 1999 MGPR (Mediterranean Group of Pesticide Research), an International Scientific Association that involves Mediterranean researchers on pesticides residues in food.
