ISHAM NEWS! (15-9-2017)

Dear , The program of the ISHAM Congress in Amsterdam is taking shape. Almost all conveners have accepted their invitations, and we will soon start inviting the speakers. Note that for every symposium one speaker will be selected from the Abstracts, which guarantees that many established as well as young participants will have the chance to speak before of an international audience. The program has 7 parallel sessions, and many plenary presentations, satellites, Young-ISHAM-day and pre- and post-congress workshops are planned. Don’t miss this opportunity!

Prof. Brakhage is responsible for one of the largest and most important research centers in medical mycology in the world. His talk at ISHAM Amsterdam will be on interaction of Aspergillus fumigatus with neutrophilic granulocytes.

For two pre-and post-congress workshops preliminary programs are available, both with excellent speaker panels. A workshop on Onygenales  - Dermatophytes and Systemic Pathogens will be held on 28 and 29 June 2018; see the program here.

A workshop on Black Yeasts and Allies is scheduled on 4 and 5 July 2018; you can find the program here. Both workshops are free of charge, but separate registration is compulsory; websites will be opened soon.
