It is a great pleasure to invite you to the 2nd Post-Graduate Training Course ‘Invasive Fungal Infections in Paediatrics; an update’ organized by the European Paediatric Mycology Network (EPMyN). The EPMyN has been launched in 2014 to create a European platform for research and education in paediatric mycology with the ultimate goal to increase our understanding of invasive fungal infections in children and neonates and to improve the outcome. This training course will be held following the Trends in Medical Mycology(TIMM), the bi-annual joined meeting of the European Confederation of Medical Mycology (ECMM) and EORTC Infectious Diseases Group. Internationally recognized European experts in the field of paediatric mycology will update you on the latest developments related to the epidemiology, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of invasive fungal infections in children.
