Conference Description

The Immunology of Fungal Infections GRS provides a unique forum for young doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to present their work, discuss new methods, cutting edge ideas, and pre-published data, as well as to build collaborative relationships with their peers. Experienced mentors and trainee moderators will facilitate active participation in scientific discussion to allow all attendees to be engaged participants rather than spectators.

Early-career medical mycologists will be brought together as one collective force at the Immunology of Fungal Infections Gordon Research Seminar to share novel insights, cutting-edge ideas, and new model systems. This can facilitate participating PhD students, post-docs, and young investigators from all over the world to build future collaborations, network, and interact in an informal atmosphere with leading faculty from fundamental as well as clinical research that will be present as discussion leaders and mentors.

The collective goal is to help our community understand the latest insights in the mechanisms at play in fungal-host interactions, the immune pathways that protect against fungal infections, and how we can exploit this knowledge to develop novel therapeutic and diagnostic strategies.
