- 12th ASM Conference on Candida and Candidiasis
This is the 12th conference in the highly successful ASM conference series that addresses Candida – a major cause of infectious disease in AIDS patients, cancer chemotherapy patients, premature infants, and many others. This conference, which is the top conference in the area, 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 fungus, the molecular mechanisms that underpin Candida pathobiology, and the immunological responses of the host to the fungus. Once again, most talks at the conference have been selected from the submitted abstracts. This conference will help determine the course of future research in this area and empower major ongoing efforts to understand, treat, and prevent Candida infections.
