Commitee for Medical Microbiology of the Czechoslovak Society for Microbiology (CSSM)
Our Committee has 15 members. MUDr. Karel Mencl, CSc. (Chairman) Petr Hamal, M.D., Ph.D. (Secretary and mandated member of the ECMM Council). We have common economy with the CSSM. Therefore, our treasurer is RNDr. Jiri Gabriel, DrSc. who is not member of our Committee.
Our Committee prepared four times the Czech and Slovak Interdisciplinary Conference of Medical Mycology, last time in 2007 (http://www.rank.cz/myko/index.html). It was intended for both laboratory workers and clinicians and topics included both deep and superficial mycoses. Conference language was Czech. Unfortunately, since then we couldn’t find enough financial support for further organization of this conference.
Otherwise, we participated in activities of CSSM, e.g. biannual Congress of the CSSM. At this moment, neither the Czechoslovak Society for Microbiology (CSSM) nor our Commitee for Medical Microbiology of the CSSM has the website in English. Currently, only websites in Czech are available, English version is still in preparation: http://www.cssm.info/english
