2018 Meeting Presentations

The MSGERC 2018 Biennial Meeting "Clinical Mycology Today" was a resounding success!  Experts from around the globe who specialize in fungus and mycoses gathered for 3 full days of plenary talks, falling into 4 broad categories: Aspergillosis, Candida, Cryptococcosis, Endemic Mycoses, plus Gerald McGwin's groundbreaking keynote presentation, "Biostatistics for Fungal Disease Trials: Special Considerations".  These sessions were followed by panel and audience interactive discussions.  

The presentation videos and handouts are listed below, click on the green buttons for the links.  Or go straight to the MSGERC YouTube Channel to see all the presentations.  We hope you will view and share them with other scientists, researchers and doctors.  Together, we champion evidence-based diagnoses, prevention, treatment and management of invasive fungal infections.
