14th Annual Fungal Update, 15-16 March 2019, London UK

30-07-2018

On Friday 15th and Saturday 16th March 2019 the 14th Annual Fungal Update will take place in the QE2 Conference Centre, London, UK.

Registration is open now and we are also open for abstract submission for oral and poster presentation. Successful abstract authors who are selected for oral presentation will receive free registration and successful abstract authors who are selected for poster presentation will receive a 25% reduction on registration.

Now in its 14th year Fungal Update continues to grow year on year and its purpose is to bring colleagues together from different fields to share knowledge about human mycoses in immunocompromised individuals. It is the largest mycosis-focused specialist meeting in the UK. This year’s conference will build on the content of previous years and will include special focus on real-world diagnostic challenges from empirical to diagnostic-driven strategies, the emerging therapeutic options, novel antibody approaches to diagnosis and treatment, the immunobiology of fungal pathogens.

In 2019 the programme will also be enhanced by the collaboration with other European Societies such as ECMM (European Confederation of Medical Mycology); BSAC (British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy), EPMyN ( European Paediatric Mycology Network); ISHAM (International Society for Human and Animal Mycology) and UKCMN ( UK Clinical Mycology Network).

The conference will be appropriate for all healthcare professionals, researchers and stakeholders interested in human mycoses in the immunocompromised host and 2019 at the prestigious QE2 Conference Centre is already generating a great amount of interest.
