The 7th joint conference "Joint Microbiology & Infection Conference 2024" of the German Society for Hygiene and Microbiology (DGHM) and the Association for General and Applied Microbiology (VAAM) offers a unique platform for this! From 2-5 June 2024, nationally and internationally renowned speakers and young scientists, as well as representatives from industry, will meet in Würzburg to exchange information on current developments in science and clinical practice.

As part of this year's DGHM & VAAM joint conference, we are looking forward to our FungiNet session on
