    It is a great pleasure for me to invite you to the ECMM EC Symposium on the occasion of the certification of the University Hospital of Cologne as a Excellence Center (EC) of the European Confederation of Medical Mycology (ECMM).
    The event will take place on October 10, 2017 from 12:00 - 17:00 in the lecture hall of the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Aging, in Cologne, Germany.
    Participation is free. For any further information, an overview of the planned program and timely registration, please visit the website, which is in German and English:


    We are expecting a highly interesting meeting sparked by the discussion of current topics and developments in the context of clinical mycology, highlighting international networking and interdisciplinary collaboration facilitating successful diagnosis, treatment and therapy and to introduce the University Hospital of Cologne as a center of excellence in fungal infections with an audience of scientists, physicians and in particular students.


    We are looking forward to welcome you on this special day in Cologne.

    Due to the distance and time difference, we are currently planning to run this event also via a stream for all those who can’t be present personally.

    Watch out our website (link here) for further information and updates regarding this option.


    Yours sincerely,
