Wednesday 4 July - Thursday 5 July 2018 Workshop Black Yeasts: venue to be defined
Price: 75 EUR
will be the subject of a workshop on at Cuba in December 2017. Since there are
so many developments in other melanized fungi, we thought it would be appropriate
to organize a workshop with a broader theme, covering all other clinical and
environmental black fungi. The ISHAM
Working Group Black Yeasts has a slot for a post-congress workshop in The
Netherlands, 4 and 5 July 2018, directly following the ISHAM Congress in
the workshop will be ISHAM-sponsored, we request researchers on environmental
fungi to give their work a medical accent if possible. Below please find the
preliminary program. If you have any data to present, or if you have any other
suggestions, please let us know. Practical data about workshop venue and
facilities will be available within 1-2 months. Abstracts are expected early
2018; you will be notified.
