Candida and Candidiasis 2023

Candida and Candidiasis 2023 will bring together scientists studying diverse aspects of Candida biology, as well as interactions between these fungal species and their mammalian hosts.

Candida species are commonly found colonizing multiple niches in the human body but are also responsible for a wide variety of important diseases that range from oral and vaginal candidiasis to life-threatening systemic infections. This meeting covers a broad spectrum of subjects that relate to Candida epidemiology, drug resistance, infection, host response, and therapeutics. The impact of Candida species on human health has recently garnered additional attention with the rapid emergence of the multi-drug resistant species Candida auris.

The goals of the meeting are to present the latest advances in the field, to spotlight the achievements of junior scientists, to ensure participation and promotion of diverse scientists, to promote synergistic and interdisciplinary interactions and to provide a forum for community-wide discussions and collaborations. Career development sessions are also included to advise junior scientists on navigating academic and non-academic options.
