The Microbiology Society are delighted to be delivering the next meeting on Candida and Candidiasis in 2021 which was formally delivered by the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) as part of their highly successful conference series that finished in 2018.
The Candida and Candidiasis meeting will take place online as a digital event between 21 and 27 March 2021, and will address all aspects of Candida biology – species that are major causes of infectious disease in AIDS patients, cancer chemotherapy patients, premature infants, and many others and will provide a vital forum for the Candida research community to present the latest advances and ideas about:
The diagnosis and treatment of Candida infections
Antifungal drug resistance
The genomics and epidemiology of the Candida clade
The molecular mechanisms that underpin Candida pathobiology
The immunological responses of the host to the fungus
This meeting will be driven by the community, with most talks being selected from the submitted abstracts and will help determine the course of future research in this area and empower major ongoing efforts to understand, treat, and prevent Candida infections.
