This year‘s 11 th IMIHM meeting is held for the fourth time as a Joint Meeting together with scientists from the CRC TransRegio 124 (“Pathogenic fungi and their human host: Networks of interaction – FungiNet”). This Collaborative Research Centre FungiNet is a network of scientists from Jena and Wuerzburg and is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft. The Consortium collaborates to better understand complex invasive mycoses by investigating the pathobiology of fungi, the response of the immune system as well as by applying systems biological approaches as a third dimension. At this meeting, especially young pre- and post-docs of the Consortium will present their very latest research data in own sessions prior to the IMIHM XI meeting.
In addition, internationally renowned experts in the field of fungal infections have once again accepted our invitation for IMIHM XI. We are very grateful to all invited speakers for their willingness to contribute to this scientific programme and to continue the discussion of the most recent developments in fungal research. The kaleidoscope of researchers includes colleagues with focuses on immunology, microbiology, clinical mycology as well as on basic science topics. In addition, we will have two key note lectures, this year they focus on the infl ammasome and on CARD signaling.
Looking forward to welcoming you and “See you in Wuerzburg”!
