The 14th ASM Conference on Candida and Candidiasis will be held in Providence, Rhode Island, April 15 – 19, 2018, to continue its legacy of providing a vital forum for the Candida research community. It will present the latest advances indiagnosis and treatment of Candida infections, antifungal drug resistance, the genomics and epidemiology of the fungus, the molecular mechanisms that underpin Candida pathobiolology, and the immunological responses of the host to the fungus.
This conference will help determine the course of future research in this area and empower major ongoing efforts to understand, treat, and prevent Candida infections.
We encourage all who are interested in the clinical practice and research on infections in immunocompromised host to attend the 20th ICHS Symposium in Athens, Greece June 17-19, 2018. Many symposia, plenary sessions, poster sessions will provide the attendee with opportunities to meet with outstanding leaders and clinical experts in the broad field of infectious diseases and immune-deficiencies while covering such diverse topics as new diagnostics, infections in transplant recipients, invasive fungal infections and resistance, treatment of multi-resistant bacteria, infectious complications in immunocompromised children, life-threatening infections and intensive care in neutropenic cancer patients ,antiviral and antifungal immune responses in compromised hosts, prophylaxis and treatment of viral infections in immunocompromised hosts, and others.
As you already know, this year the International Fusarium laboratory Workshop, initiated by Prof. John Leslie, will be host by CNR-ISPA from 18–22 June, 2018, in Bari. The workshop is supported by MycoKey in collaboration with International Society for Mycotoxicology and it represents the main international workshop in the field of Fusarium with some of the most international renowned experts in Fusarium.More informations are available in the attached brochure or following website
This workshop will enhance the dialog of experts and young scientists on: 1) the current and emerging challenges posed by pests and pathogens to forest tree species; 2) the current status and extent of our knowledge of genetic foundations of resistance to these threats; 3) the emerging ideas and technologies from around the globe that are relevant to resistance genetics and breeding programs; 4) the successes to date in applied resistance breeding programs; and 5) creating a vision for the next decade for work in this area. The timing of this meeting is critical as examples of the implementation of both classical (e.g. white pine blister rust resistance and fusiform rust resistance in pines) and novel (e.g. transgenic blight-resistant chestnut) resistance development in forest species are coming to the forefront and the directions that individual breeding programs may choose for developing resistant trees in the future will likely rely heavily on examples such as these.
