The 7th International Medicinal Mushroom Conference First Circular 7-10 July 2013 Nantong, China

The theme of the conference:
Medicinal mushrooms and their products into global healthcare systems in the 21st Century

The international movement for the medicinal mushroom industry marked an important milestone when the International Journal of Medicinal Mushroom (IJMM) was launched in 1999 by Begell House Inc. (USA). This then led to the inaugural International Medicinal Mushroom Conference (IMMC) held in Kiev, Ukraine, in 2001 when it was agreed that there would be an IMMC every two years. The IMMC2 was held in Pattaya, Thailand, in 2003; The IMMC3 was held in Port Townsend, USA, in 2005; and the IMMC4 was held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in 2007. The IMMC5 was held in Nantong, China, in 2009. In 2011 the IMMC6 was held in Zagreb, Croatia. The IMMC7 will be held in Beijing, China, in 2013 due to the wonderful job that was done four years prior.
