5th ECMM Educational Symposium “Rare Yeasts – A Growing Threat”


In view of the current state of the COVID 19 Pandemic, and following consultation with the ECMM Board, ECMM Educational Officer and Congress Care, it was decided to postpone the Educational Symposium in Iasi, Romania on “Rare Yeasts – A Growing Threat” to July 1-2, 2021.

It is believed that the postponement will favor the  travel possibilities and enlarge the participation at the Symposium.


This meeting, jointly organized by ECMM, ESCMID, and ISHAM, is presenting a novel approach to a microbial group – the “rare yeasts” as human pathogens of significance. It will focus on a new aspect of fungal infections, which did not thus far receive adequate attention, and may contribute to further interest, resulting in novel diagnostic and therapeutic measures.
The scientific program will include state-of-the-art presentations in the field, from taxonomy and pathogenicity to immunity and guidelines for infection management.
Practical sessions will be dedicated to morphologic and molecular tools for rare yeasts identification.

We look forward to welcoming you in Romania!
