PAEMGS & the SFRR- Africa

The purpose of the PAEMGS is to encourage the study of mutagens, carcinogens and substances of related biological activity in the human environment, particularly those of importance to public health. The society aims to assist African scientists to recognize and control these problems in their own countries; to facilitate the spread of information and technology concerning environmental mutagens and carcinogens, and to promote cooperation and training programmes between different African countries with leading laboratories and international agencies around the world.

The SFRR-Africa is dedicated to studying the interaction between free radicals and antioxidants in health and disease development with relevance to biochemistry, biology, immunology, medicine, food technology, biotechnology, pharmacology and bio-physics.

The objectives of these two societies are complementary and supportive of the fields of study.
