New date: 5th ECMM Educational Symposium- RARE YEASTS – A GROWING THREAT, 6-7- May 2021, IASI – ROMANIA


The 5th ECMM Educational Symposium, jointly organized by ECMM, ESCMID, and ISHAM, on the topic: “Rare Yeasts – A growing Threat” previously planned on October 1st and 2nd, 2020 in Iasi, Romania, is postponed to May, 6 and 7, 2021. 

This meeting 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.
The host city – Iasi, is the Romanian second largest city and it has traditionally been one of the leading centers of social, cultural, academic, and artistic life. On 24 January 2019, the city was officially named Historical Capital of Romania, a title that recognizes the role it had in the country’s history.

We look forward to welcoming you in Romania!
Prof. Esther Segal and Prof. Mihai Mares
Symposium Chairs
